The president of FFTAF, Eeva Pakkanen has in the capacity of the president of the Nordic Federation of Commercial Agents, made an initiative to IUCAB last week. Her initiative suggests that in the changing business environment members are faced with new commercial challenges. Due to this, a growing number of members are active in international trade also as distributors. Since these members are asking for additional commercial and legal advices, she proposes IUCAB to develop a form for distributorship agreement to better serve the member companies. This initiative will be on the agenda of ExCom of IUCAB and the Legal Working Group for their meeting next week.
EU Commission tuore päätös on jättää Kauppa-agentteja koskeva EU direktiivi ennalleen. EU direktiivi 86/653 on siis edelleen voimassa. Tämä saatiin aikaiseksi IUCABin päättäväisellä työllä ja erinomaisilla perusteluilla. IUCAB pystyi osoittamaan vakuuttavalla datalla direktiivin vaikutuspiirissä olevien henkilöiden ja yritysten määrän sekä direktiivin toimivuuden myös nykypäivänä.
Alla on lehdistötiedote sekä sen tiimoilta käyty mailikeskustelu teidän kaikkien tiedoksi.
have already expected such a discussion – so I have immediately inquired after the publication of the report to the Commission. The response from Gerd Heinen – who wrote the review report manly – has a clear result. The response has unfortunately been somewhat delayed due to his holiday absence.
He wrote to me that the evaluation of the Directive has been completed with the publication of the report. A vote by the Commission to each individual listed program in the REFIT initiative is not automatically provided, unless in case of a required change in legislation. But such is not even given in the Commercial Agents Directive with the look on the clear results of the evaluation report. Future evaluations of the Directive (medium or long term) of course are not excluded.
So, for the Commission the evaluation of the commercial agents Directive under the REFIT program has been completed and even finished with the publication of the report.
So the wording of the press release is completely correct.

Betreff: RE: Press release: commercial agents Directive saved for the future
I agree with your sentiments.
We have a phrase that says” it is not over until the …lady sings!”
On 5th August – I have also mentioned this to the team & urged caution.
Maybe best we say
EU REFIT team supports the retention of the EU Directive for Commercial Sales Agents.

Subject: Re: Press release: commercial agents Directive saved for the future
Dear Mr President,
dear Mr Secretary General,
hallo IUCAB friends,
thank you for the press release.
I am a little bit confused about the information. Analysing the report published on the website of the EU commission and especially the longer version I come to the conclusion that the recommendation is made by the DG market, department of Mrs Rehbinder.
You received also this information of our former Vice President Walter Krammer in the beginning of July.
Therefore it is true in the press release that the recommendation is published on the website of the EU commission but a final decision of the commission is not taken until now. Of course I think that the commission will follow the recommendation of his specialised department but now we haven’t finished our race. There are some meters missing until the 100m race is won.
Please be therefore careful with this kind of press release. I know that maybe the Austrians are to correct in this matter but in the past there were sometimes surprises and we have learned celebrating a victory after passing the finish line.
If I haven’t the full actual information so let me please know about your opinion.
Kind regards from Tuscany and all the best

Nordic Federation Annual meeting was held in Warsaw 13.5.2015 in connection to IUCAB meeting. All member countries: Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland were present at the meeting. Denmark will come also as active member, so far they have been observers only. Nordic Federation has four votes in Iucab and we are therefore one of the strong members.
Swedish Agentur Företagen is the most active among us with their almost 700 members.
Here in the picture are the two members of IUCAB working groups: Ole-Kristian Bull is member in Excom and Michael Svendsen in LWG.
