DISTRIBUTION:

SUPPLIERS / DISTRIBUTORS

ARTICLE L.441-7 OF THE FRENCH COMMERCIAL CODE REGULATES THE ANNUAL NEGOTIATION OF THE SINGLE CONVENTION OR FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT GOVERNING BUSINESS RELATIONS BETWEEN ECONOMIC PARTNERS -SUPPLIERS, DISTRIBUTORS, BRAND NAME RETAILERS, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, ETC.

PICART PREPARES ITS CLIENTS TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF THE PROVIDED MECHANISMS AND REVIEWS ALL CONTRACTS TO IDENTIFY POSSIBLE RISKS.

The general provisions of the French Commercial Code are supplemented by specific rules for each category of activity and product namely - consumer goods, luxury goods, alcohol, and agricultural products, etc. derived from texts of various sources including European regulations, decrees, and inter-professional agreements, etc.

Inspections by the Directorate General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Repression of Fraud (DGCCRF), investigations by the Competition Authority, and the risks related to restrictive competition practices make controlling these negotiations vitally important.
