In Europe, the first country to adopt legislation relating to franchising was France: on 31 December Law No. The details of this law were laid down in Government Decree No. Instead, Article A of the Commercial Code was adopted, although it relates to consumer protection more than to the relationship between franchisor and franchisee. In accordance with the fourth paragraph of Article L, the disclosure document must be delivered at least twenty days before the execution of the contract or, if applicable, before the payment of any sum of money that is required, in particular in order to obtain an exclusive territory. Article A contains one paragraph, which states that any person who sells products or provides services and is bound to a franchisor by a franchise agreement, shall inform consumers that it is an independent enterprise, in a legible and visible manner, on the totality of its information documents, in particular on publicity, as well as inside and outside its sales premises.
