Dear Colleague,

The topic of agency distribution in the automotive sector appears to be gathering pace with considerable media ‘comment’ at the moment.

NFDA are currently working with a legal team plus commissioning some analysis to enable us to provide legal guidance to members.

To keep all members updated, today’s news bulletin contains an update statement – from NFDA ‘Exploring the Competition Law Risks of Agency Models in the Automotive Sector’.

We will obviously continue to communicate the ongoing work we are doing. However, if you want further guidance, information or discuss any issues please do contact me.

NFDA is the voice of automotive retailers: if you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our member helpline on 01788 538303 or email

Sue Robinson, NFDA Chief Executive
