Possession-agent in Europe

Possession-agent (in European Private Law)

In this context, this may be a concept of the term: A “possession-agent”, in relation to goods, is a person (such as an employee) who exercises direct physical control over the goods on behalf of an owner-possessor or limited-rightpossessor (without the intention and specific legal relationship required for that person to be a limited-right-possessor); and to whom the owner-possessor or limited-right-possessor may give binding instructions as to the use of the goods in the interest of the owner-possessor or limited-right-possessor. A person is also a possession-agent where that person is accidentally in a position to exercise, and does exercise, direct physical control over the goods for an owner-possessor or limited-right-possessor.
