  Model Confidentiality Agreement - ICC Model Confidentiality Clause
  ICC Product No. 774E, 2016 Edition
   
  Before entering a business transaction, companies of all sizes have to consider how to protect sensitive information by drafting a non-disclosure agreement. As each company tries to build a confidentiality contract in its favour, the process may often cause long discussions, delays and higher transaction costs.

In order to lower the time and efforts spent on negotiations, ICC has developed the ICC Model Confidentiality Agreement and ICC Model Confidentiality Clause. Aimed to assist business people and lawyers who are not necessarily experts on the subject, ICC offers a balanced cross-sectorial model taking into account interests of both disclosing and receiving parties. Moreover the ICC Models can be used in relation to all kinds of confidential information and a wide variety of business transactions. The ICC Model Confidentiality Agreement and ICC Model Confidentiality Clause provide to industry and commerce a common platform acceptable in different jurisdictions and countries.

In 2016, the ICC Model Confidentiality Agreement and ICC Model Confidentiality Clause were carefully reviewed by the ICC’s Commission on Commercial Law and Practice and particularly by its Task Force on Confidentiality Agreements, to include the latest changes in practice.
  ICC Model Contract Selective Distributorship
  ICC Product No. 773E, 2016 Edition
   
  The ICC Model Contract “Selective Distribution” is intended for the marketing of products through a network of qualified retailers. Selective distribution agreements allow the exporter to better control the way its products are marketed by creating a direct link between the exporter and the retailers who sell its products to the final consumer.

This model covers selection criteria, the distributor’s minimum purchase obligation, the supplier’s general conditions of sale and after-sale service. It provides a sound legal basis upon which parties can quickly establish an even-handed agreement acceptable to both sides. It saves resources for companies and their legal advisers.

Updated in 2016, the model includes a USB key presenting the text of the contract in a user friendly and fully editable format, allowing you to adapt the contract to your specific needs.
  ICC Guide on Transport and the Incoterms® 2010 Rules
  ICC Product No. 775E, 2016 Edition
   
  The ICC Guide on Transport and the Incoterms® 2010 Rules is a new handbook providing clarity and practical support to those in the transport sector working on transactions involving the Incoterms® rules.

When goods need to be transported from a seller to a buyer, in most cases an independent carrier is involved. This guide has been developed to clarify multiple issues arising in the interrelation of contracts of carriage and the Incoterms® 2010 rules in contracts for the sales of goods and help readers address the complex steps of today’s logistics chains.

Covering each of the 11 rules and reflecting both types of sales when the buyer contracts for carriage and when the seller does so, this book is a must-have for those in the transport sector. The full text of the Incoterms ® 2010 rules is also included in the book.
  ICC Model Contract on Distributorship
  ICC Publication No. 776E, 2016 Edition
   
  Distributorship contracts are one of the most frequently used means for organizing the distribution of goods in a foreign country. Almost every company engaged in international trade has some distributors abroad, which means that most exporters will be faced with drafting an international distributorship agreement at some point. But one of the difficulties that traders face when drawing up contracts is the lack of uniform regulations. This means that parties must refer primarily to the rules set out in their agreements, which in turn makes the careful drafting of such contracts vital.

The ICC Model Contract on Distributorship provides a uniform contractual framework which incorporates the prevailing practice of international trade. It specifically applies to agreements under which the distributors act either as buyers and resellers, or as importers who organize distribution in the country in which they operate. This new revised version takes into account recent developments in the laws affecting distribution.

It includes a USB key which contains the full text of the model and its annexes, permitting you to easily adapt the contract to your specific case. If parties have no need to draw up a special contract of their own, they can use the entire model, which has been drafted to assure balance for both sides.
  ICC Model Contract “Consortium Agreement”
  ICC Publication No. 779E, 2016 Edition
   
  Companies of all sizes wanting to cooperate on major projects, whether international or domestic, require solid and balanced terms and conditions for such cooperation and it is vital that the arrangements put in place be durable, clear and equitable thereby enhancing business in general.

The new ICC Model Contract “Consortium Agreement” addresses these needs by providing a unique, balanced platform that is fair to all parties. The model accommodates the desire of all parties for a solid unanimous decision making process, a clear allocation of participation and provision of resources, the need for swift and effective dispute resolution, and the need for complete and informed allocation of risks.

It includes a USB key which contains the full text of the model and its annexes, permitting you to easily adapt the contract to your specific case. If parties have no need to draw up a special contract of their own, they can use the entire model, which has been drafted to assure balance for both sides.

This model was produced by ICC’s Commercial Law and Practice Commission under the leadership of Chair Fabio Bortolotti (Italy). It has benefited from the active participation of the following members of the Major Project Group, co-chaired by Eric Eggink (Netherlands) and Isabelle Smith Monnerville (France): Jens Machoy (Germany), Martin Kurtze (Germany), Bettina Geisseler (Germany), Francine Gurral (France), Mireille Bouzols-Breton (France), Arnoud Penseel (Netherlands), Giovanni Leo (Italy), Claudio Perrella (Italy), Helena Prata (Angola), Rana Obeid (UAE), Jane Davies Evans (UK), Ben Beaumont (UK), Galyah Natan-Epstein (Israel), Linna Li (China), Haifeng Li (China), Erick Castellanos (Colombia), Terry F Moritz (United States).
  ICC Arbitration in Practice
  ICC Publication No. 768E, 2015 Edition
   
  The Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce – commonly referred to as the ICC Rules — are the rules most frequently used in commercial disputes between business partners from different countries. Since they were first launched in 1922, these Rules have been applied in over 21,000 cases.

The second revised edition of this eminently practical volume provides an article-by-article commentary of the current version of the ICC Rules of Arbitration in force as from 1 January 2012. Using clear and concise language, unencumbered by footnotes and illustrated by flow diagrams, the authors guide the reader through the various stages of ICC arbitration proceedings, from initiation to the final award. This thorough analysis is enhanced with other invaluable material, including:

- a digest of statistics relating to ICC arbitration for the years 2009 to 2013;
- references to selected national arbitration laws and to the UNCITRAL Model Law on
- International Commercial Arbitration ;
- a bibliography, including useful web sites; and
- a separate chapter on ICC’s other dispute resolution services, such as mediation, expert - proceedings, dispute boards, DOCDEX and the pre-arbitral referee procedure.

Appendices provide the reader with the texts of ICC’s various dispute resolution rules and other relevant documents.

The authors, all practicing lawyers, have all worked as counsel at the Secretariat of the ICC International Court of Arbitration. They have gone on to represent parties and act as arbitrators in many international proceedings. They also serve as mediators and party representatives in international mediations. They are also members of the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR and participated in the discussions leading to the 2012 ICC Rules of Arbitration.

Written from a practical perspective, this book remains an essential resource for company lawyers who wish to familiarize themselves with ICC arbitration, assess the pros and cons of entering into an arbitration clause referring to the ICC Rules, or obtain information and guidance on how to proceed in a given situation. Arbitration practitioners will find useful information on the practice of ICC arbitration, including various notes of the ICC Court Secretariat and reports of the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR.
