This Model Contract is for the long-term supply of manufactured Goods, between a Supplier and a Customer. The contract is intended for use in connection with manufactured Goods, rather than commodities, which have their own special features, and are often sold on the standard forms of producers’ or dealers’ associations. The Supplier may or may not be the manufacturer of the Goods. The contract is not intended for use where the Goods are supplied for resale by a distributor (see the Model Contract for the International Distribution of Goods).
