Exclusive Manufacturer`s Representative Agreement

Paragraph 1.1 contains the basic terms of the exclusive designation. Products and territory should be defined in Exhibits A and .B. Note that, although the basic order is carried out exclusively, paragraphs 1.2 and 1.3 contain certain usual limits for the agent`s promotion rights and that these must be verified in accordance with the terms agreed upon by the parties. Some of the guarantees described above may exclude any changes to the product list in accordance with paragraph 1.3. Paragraph 2.1 defines the representative`s obligations under fairly standardized conditions. Among other things, paragraph 2.1.12 assumes that the agent will approve a minimum volume of orders set out in Appendix C. In accordance with paragraph 2.1.12, non-compliance with the minimum requirement means that the manufacturer may choose to terminate the representative`s exclusive rights or even terminate the contract; and, in this regard, redundant parentheses and square language should be abolished. In the specific context of distribution agreements, most U.S. states have statutes that protect local trade agents. The main characteristics of statutes of this type are described below.

A number of countries also have legislation on the protection of trade agents or trade agents (Member States of the European Community, Costa Rica and most middle Eastern countries, to name a few). These statutes may restrict the manufacturer`s ability to make changes to the product line or area or to end the agreement or otherwise reject it. Therefore, it is imperative to consult the competent lawyer who is licensed in the country concerned, since the manufacturer`s liabilities can be considerable under such statutes (although this is usually due diligence, since these obligations cannot normally be excluded contractually). When preparing an agreement to represent distributors for use in the United States, it is important to consider the effects of applicable national law. The states of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin have laws specifically aimed at protecting.

Some jurisdictions, particularly Minnesota and Puerto Rico, go further and prohibit a manufacturer from terminating or extending a sales representation contract, unless there is a good reason to do so. In other words, even if an agreement is to expire within a specified time frame, the manufacturer can only terminate or refuse the extension, unless the commercial is in violation or there is no other good reason to do so. As a general rule, a sales agent does not have the right to bind the manufacturer (this is the most important distinction of a sales agent). A sales agent may be retained either exclusively or exclusively.
