Agency Agreement French

The selected agreement is a contract by which a supplier gives a non-exclusive right to a distributor chosen according to the criteria defined by the supplier to ensure the proper marketing of its products. A selective distribution system is used where it is a question of preserving the image, brand and positioning of products. Declaration of resignation: 1 month for the first year, 2 months for the second year, 3 months after. In the event of early termination of the brokerage contract, the holder is entitled to compensation for the damage suffered. This pre-contractual information document must be made available to the distributor at least twenty days before the contract is signed. In addition to the essential legal requirements, you should also be present in the distribution contract: according to the compensation system, the intermediary is entitled to compensation for damage caused by the termination of his relationship with his customer. There are 3 types of distribution agreements: (1) the exclusive « exclusive distribution » agreement, (2) the « selective distribution » agreement and (3) the « franchise agreement ». A trade restriction clause applicable during the trade agreement is permitted by French law, in particular articles 3 and 4. In a sales agency, since the agent works as an intermediary for the supplier, the supplier can however consolidate the prices. The above minimum termination periods also apply to fixed-term commercial representation contracts, if they have been maintained after their normal termination date. A written agreement is required in certain cases, for example in the event of post-contractual non-competition.
