Commercial Agent Case and Statute Citator 2019

The 2019 edition of Andrew Marsden’s Commercial Agent: Case and Statute Citator 2019 provides a useful and accessible source of reference to the law regarding Commercial Agents and the Commercial Agents Regulations 1993 (SI 1993/3053)

The terms of the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993 (SI 1993/3053) (as amended) ('the Regulations') implement Council Directive 86/653 [1986] OJ L382/17 ('the Directive'). The Regulations came into force on 1 January 1994 and contain important provisions affecting the relations between commercial agents and their principals. In broad terms, a 'commercial agent' comprises a self-employed intermediary who negotiates or concludes sales or purchases of "goods" on behalf of his principal. The Regulations provide an entitlement to an 'indemnity' or 'compensation' on termination effected by the principal and set out certain duties owed between commercial agents and their principals. They also contain provisions relating to the basis of remuneration of commercial agents, the termination of commercial agencies and the validity of restraint of trade clauses.
