EU Monitoring report on Basics of balanced distribution collaboration

4/4/2013

The European Power Transmission Distributors Association (EPTDA) represents the interests of the power transmission and motion control (PT/MC) industry. One of its roles is to provide Legal Watchdog services, monitoring EU legal developments and informing its members and the industry accordingly. The EU Monitoring reports are designed to provide support to companies having a limited access to this kind of information and EU law developments, or limited capabilities to investigate such matters.

EPTDA just released its 29th EU Monitoring report. It outlines legal basics to support developing balanced distribution collaboration – format, performance, specifics, technical aspects and legal scope. The report aims to provide a set of advice to prepare a successful, balanced distribution collaboration between a distributor and a manufacturer.

Recently, EPTDA also published a Distributor-Manufacturer Agreement Checklist. As part of its ethical commitment and best practice programme, EPTDA promotes balanced relationships between distributors and manufacturers. The Checklist is a sequence of guidelines aimed to help distributors and manufacturers make sure that all important aspects of business collaboration with each other are addressed when discussing terms, and/or included in the formal contract/agreement.

The EU Monitoring reports are a tangible benefit of EPTDA membership. Members can download the integral paper from the Members Area.

Why EU matters to your company?

In an ever changing global business environment it is crucial to look and think outside the box. To succeed in today's business environment, a company must deal with the possible business barriers before they arise and hamper competitiveness.

European Union is the source of 70-80 % of the legislation that governs our everyday life and business practices. No sector can afford to ignore European policies, as it can cost them substantial resources when the European legislation is adopted or altered against the interests of their sector.

EPTDA's member companies are vulnerable to change in many policy areas such as: environment, energy, trade and consumer protection that can affect the competitiveness and profitability of the sector.
