The Rusprodsoyuz Association of Producers and Suppliers of Food Products records an increase in retailer fines for suppliers after the entry into force of the new version of the law On Trade. In some cases, the size of fines exceeds the value in 15%, previously recognized by retailers and manufacturers as “fair,” Dmitry Leonov, deputy chairman of the board of Rusprodsoyuz, told RNS.
“Some market participants did raise penalties for violating certain terms of the contract. At the same time, in some cases, these fines exceed 15% - a threshold value that was previously recognized by suppliers and retailers as fair within the sectoral commission, ”he said, adding that“ legislative restriction of fines is considered redundant ”.
According to Leonov, “it’s too early to talk about violations of the law (the new version of the law“ On Trade ”. - RNS), since for effective supply contracts it comes into force only from January 1, 2017. Now, suppliers and retailers are only groping for soil, calculating options for rebuilding a real business model of interaction. ”
Earlier, the deputy of the State Duma from the United Russia party and the head of the monitoring group for implementing the new version of the Law on Trade Irina Yarovaya stated that the monitoring group notes “new trends that are associated with the introduction and imposition of discounts and the imposition and imposition of fines” by retailers. Spring also noted that in September-October, additional solutions could be proposed at the level of the law and at the level of government decrees. The deputy, among other things, expressed the idea of introducing a legislative restriction on retailer fines for suppliers.
The head of the Retail Companies Association (ACORT), Ilya Lomakin-Rumyantsev, told RNS earlier that the commission on the code of relations between retail chains and suppliers of consumer goods (the “Code of Good Practice”) recommended that retailers limit themselves to 15% penalties.
According to Lomakin-Rumyantsev, "the network that caused the anxiety of Spring did so."
In early July, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law providing, inter alia, reduction of the maximum size retrobonusov retailers from suppliers to 5% and reduction of terms of payment of the goods supplied by retailers.
