The author assesses the main international treaties in the sphere of representation: the Hague convention on the law applicable to agency 1978, the Geneva convention on agency in the international sale of goods 1983, acts of soft law (UNIDROIT Principles of international commercial contracts, Model commercial agency contract and Guide for the drawing up commercial agency contracts of International Chamber of Commerce), Directives and Regulations of the European Union, Principles of European contract law, Draft common frame of reference. The author concludes about necessity of drafting at the universal level a document of soft law (in the form of a model law) containing the substantive rules on internal and external relationships of a commercial representation.
