Welcome to JustAnswer! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete excellent answer for you.

My name is Fred and I'm going to assist you with your question.

Please bear with me if you believe my answer isn’t coming fast enough because I’m also working with other customers too. I apologize for any seemingly late response.

I'm not exactly sure of the parties and who will agree to what - can you restate what you're wanting once more?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

customer violates manufacturer's procedures. this could cause delays or other problems. Customer would sign a waiver/indemnification. What should it look like?

Thank you!

I presume you wan the customer to sign a "release" - a release holding the manufacturer harmless and waiver if they violate their procedures.

Now this is as to use of the product they, the customer, bought from the manufacturer - correct?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, a release and waiver from any terms express or implied and indemnification against any potential damages.

I'm having trouble posting the release.

I'll try again.
