ICC Model Commercial Agency Contract

The ICC Model Contract on Commercial Agency is for parties negotiating agency agreements abroad who face a major difficulty: the lack of uniform rules. There is no internationally agreed uniform legislation for agency agreements, and so parties have to rely on national laws, which usually differ from country to country. This contract accommodates these differences.

The ICC Model Contract on Distributorship provides a uniform contractual framework which incorporates the prevailing practice of international trade. Distributorship contracts are one of the most frequently used means for organizing the distribution of goods in a foreign country. Almost every company engaged in international trade has some distributors abroad, which means that most exporters will be faced with drafting an international distributorship agreement at some point.
