About the MPC-Conditions

The MPC-Conditions are a unique set of general trading conditions for the international trade in dairy products.

The Conditions are established by the Dairy Products Wholesalers Association (The Hague, the Netherlands). As of April 13th, 2011, the Dairy Products Wholesalers Association merged along with two other organisations with Gemzu. Gemzu has now adopted all legal responsibilities including the MPC-Conditions.

The MPC-conditions set general trade rules especially for milk powders but also for other dairy products.

The Conditions are divided into three parts:

  • MPC-Conditions applicable within the European Union
  • MPC-Conditions applicable outside the European Union
  • MPC-Arbitration regulations

Arbitration is a form of extrajudicial dispute resolution that can be used to achieve quick and high-quality results in dispute cases, due to expert arbitrators and modern arbitration rules.

Arbitration proceedings are conducted according to the rules of the MPC-Arbitration regulations, subject to the Dutch Arbitration Act of 1986. For each dispute, an external lawyer practicing in the Netherlands, is appointed secretary to the Arbitration Bboard.

Parties involved in an arbitration procedure can state their preference for an arbitrator with the listing procedure. The procedure for appointing arbitrators is recorded in article 6 of the MPC Arbitration rules. See the Arbitration Board for the names of arbitrators who are available to conduct arbitration proceedings according to the MPC Conditions.

Pursuant to the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (New York, 10 June 1958), an arbitral ruling is recognized and can be enforced in over 140 nations. It is therefore easier to enforce an abitral ruling than an ordinary Court ruling.

See for two examples of MPC rulings, available to third parties: competence / cycle.

If you apply the MPC-Conditions and Arbitration rules, you choose professional, unbiased trading conditions and a professional, high-quality, quick and impartial form of dispute resolution.

The MPC-Conditions are available in Dutch, English, French, German and Spanish and can be ordered by e-mail: info@gemzu.nl or downloaded from this site (see below).
