Who can use this Representation Agreement?

What is this Representation Agreement for?
This representation agreement creates an arrangement between a manufacturer or supplier and a sales representative in another country. Unlike a commission agreement, the company making the appointment is more of an employer or joint-venture partner. It will provide funding for the representative and, at the end of each year, the representative will get a share of profits based on the sales that are generated.
What are the main issues for this type of agreement?

Fee arrangements. As this is not a simple commission arrangement, the representative is likely to receive a living allowance and expenses and then share in profits.
Non—competition. The company making the appointment will want to prevent the representative from working for direct competitors both during the agreement and for a time after it ends.
