For creation or adaptation of Contract Forms, Rules and Practices Codes and technical addenda, the Syndicat de Paris gathers periodically some contract commissions or technical commissions in which all the interested operators are represented (buyers, sellers, traders, grain collectors, exporters, brokers, freight forwarders, industrials, carriers, labs, inspection companies etc.). When the question examined so requires, experts (lawyers, agronomists, professors, etc.) are invited.
The aim of these commissions is to reach a consensus on contractual marketing rules, so that operators can refer to them during their trade transactions.
The action of the Syndicat de Paris is based on the one hand, at the technical level, on the BIPEA (International Bureau of Analytical Studies) which ensures the selection and control of laboratories, on behalf of the Syndicat de Paris, anable to carry out the product analyzes required by contractual documents and, on the other hand, at the jurisdictional level, on the International Arbitration Chamber Of Paris to which any dispute between operators can be referred.
The Syndicat de Paris thus constitutes both a forum for discussion and extended proposals widely open to all those who have authority and expertise in the field of soil products in France and in Europe.
The SYNDICAT DE PARIS makes carry out, by referenced laboratories, analyzes (or counter-analyzes) of samples of agricultural products in accordance with standard sales contracts, such as INCOGRAIN contracts or Codes of practice.
