Entrepreneurs in the international commodity trade, especially en masse, come up against documents such as NCNDA (Non-Circumvention Agreement), IMFPA (International Master Fee Protection Agreement) and other documents of this type, we are sorry to burst your bubble, not all of them, but most of these documents you sign/transmit are FAKE and are not approved by the ICC. Is there a real ICC approved contract/contract called NCND? The answer is yes! The standard contract contains only the option of a fixed-term contract and therefore excludes a contract of indefinite duration, since such a solution is almost never used for this type of agreement. The parties may indicate the duration (or expiry date) of the agreement as well as the conditions for its renewal. If no agreement has been reached, the contract is considered concluded for a period of one year Careful study of the duration of the NCNDA. For example, a period of five years extends from the date of signature of the contract. You can also choose an expiration date for the privacy agreement (for example. B when the project is completed). You can also force someone to keep the secret indefinitely, which means that the signatory cannot at any time disclose the confidential information contained in the agreement. If the parties decide not to pursue a business relationship, neither party may use the other party`s information. This is why a non-circumvention agreement is almost always signed at the same time as a confidentiality agreement. Each party is obliged not to disclose confidential information received under the NCND Agreement, such as customer names, contract sources, business opportunities made available through the intermediary; or on the other hand, information that the other gives about his marketing organization, pricing policy, business strategies, etc. Make sure that the agreement covers persons and/or entities related to each party. It is always a good idea to include a provision that makes each party responsible for ensuring that its staff, representatives and independent contractors comply with the provisions of the NCNDA.
