This chapter addresses the most frequently used distribution formulas or formats. Given the increasing importance of online distribution, this format is addressed separately as competition law questions triggered by online distribution are quite specific. The chapter also deals with supply relationships. They can be straightforward supply relationships, but also include subcontracting scenarios. The objective of the chapter is to provide a hands-on tool that assists the practitioner in selecting the most appropriate set-up meeting his particular needs. The objective is to come as closely as possible to a tick-the-box approach so that efficient use can be made of the chapter in daily advisory practice.
