How DDO impacts Product Distributors
Product distributors are expected to take reasonable steps to distribute products to consumers that fall within their target market.
Distributors will therefore need to investigate whether they have sufficient information about the end consumer to determine whether they fall in or out of the target market. If not, they need to take steps to collect and ingest the outstanding information into the sales process.
