Draft bill on franchising

A law is being drafted for the franchising industry to improve relations between franchisors and franchisees. The proposal has now been announced, fresh off the press. With this, State Secretary Mona Keijzer of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and Minister Sander Dekker for Legal Protection are implementing the agreements from the coalition agreement and the government’s wish to introduce legislation that should better protect the franchisee in the future. For example, the bill limits the franchisor’s ability to unilaterally change contracts.

The draft bill that the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy has drawn up with the Ministry of Justice and Security will enter internet consultation on 12 December 2018 for a period of seven weeks. See: https://www.internetconsultatie.nl/wet_franchise
