  1. ICC Model Distributorship Contract   

Traders negotiating international distribution agreements find the task much easier if they use uniform rules.

The rules apply to agreements under which the distributors act either as buyers and resellers or as importers who organize distribution in the country in which they operate.

The rules included in the contract are both flexible and general. If parties have no need to draw up a specific contract of their own, they can use the entire model, which has been drafted to assure balance for both sides. Concise and practical, the ICC Model Distributorship Contract is an invaluable tool for companies engaged in international trade and their lawyers. It carries the authority of ICC, the organization that pioneered many of the basic rules and mechanisms at the heart of international trade.
