Ingmar v Eaton Leonard [2001, ECJ]

Facts

  • An agency agreement was terminated, in which the agent sold pipe-bending machines

Issue

  • For how long after termination was the agent entitled to commission under regulation 8(a)?

Decision

  • 21 months

Reasoning

  • Seasons for pipe-bending machines lasted about 21 months, so the next round of replacement orders would be attributable to a new agent
  • The Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993 (including regulation 17) are applicable to an agent who trades in the European Union, irrespective of the fact his agency agreement was concluded within the jurisdiction of California, USA
