Exclusive Agreement With Distributors Abroad (Revision of the model Contract) (with CD Rom)
1st May, 2011

Scope of the model contract:

Applicability to contracts with distributors outside and distributors inside the EU/EEA
The model is made for distribution agreements with distributors abroad. It is suitable for contracts with both distributors pursuing their activities outside the member states of the European Union and the other states of the EEA and those having their business inside this area. This is why some clauses contain so-called EU/EEA variants and non-EU/EEA variants to suit the individual transactions.

This new version of one of Orgalime’s most widely-used models reflects the changes in EU competition law that followed from new rules issued in 2010 by the European Commission (notably the Block Exemption on the application of Article 101(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union to categories of vertical agreements and concerted practices (Commission Regulation (EU) No. 330/2010).


Among the different issues covered by this publication are the duration of the contract, the commission of the distributor, competition restrictions, minimum quantity and industrial property rights.


The Model Contract is sold in a package with the paper and digital versions.
