An Appointed distributor must allow the Authorities to access the Product Master Files, when asked. In the hands of a possible competitor, this could have disastrous long term consequences.
Appointing a distributor requires that he must remain neutral in all actions and responsibilities, especially toward 'rival' Distributors.
