Nations in all regions of the world today share a common international sales law, The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The Convention was prepared by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and adopted by a diplomatic conference on 11 April 1980. Since then, the number of countries that have adopted the CISG account for over two-thirds of all world trade. The area of international sales law continues to grow as technology and development take us to a global economy. As such, the study of the CISG has become an integral component of this ever-growing area of international commercial law. The Review of the CISG is published once yearly and features articles written by prominent legal scholars in the field of international sale of goods from around the world. In addition to scholarly writings analyzing the various articles of the CISG, the book seeks to compile translations of recent decisions as well as commentaries of notable cases relating to the CISG.

Non conformity in the 1980 UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods

Release Date: 2004
Genre: Law

The 1980 UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) unifies the law governing the rights and obligations arising from a contract for the international sale of goods for the seller and the buyer. The CISG entered into force on 1 January 1988. The current number of 62 contracting States, representing two thirds of the world trade, shows the relevance of this Convention. Moreover, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has published a model for an international sales contract that presupposes the application of the Convention. Since no supranational court exists to safeguard a uniform interpretation of its provisions, the case law from different states on the basis of the CISG needs to be compared. One of the main obligations for the seller under the Convention is to deliver goods which are in conformity with the contract (art. 35 CISG). With respect to this particular obligation, a number of questions have arisen. For example, do the goods delivered need to comply with any public law requirements in the country where the goods will be used? When and how does a buyer have to give notice to the seller of any lack of conformity? Is any fault on the part of the seller required for a buyer to be able to rely on this provision? Who bears the burden of proof? Can a buyer rely on any concurrent claims based on national law, alongside his claim based on lack of conformity? This book contains an analysis of the case law that has been established on the basis of the CISG concerning the aforementioned questions. Special attention has been paid to court decisions in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland, as well as to arbitral awards by the ICC Court of Arbitration. In this respect, the role of the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts in the interpretation of the CISG has also been analysed. The book provides a unique combination, because it contains both an analysis of the issue of (non-)conformity as such and an overview of the recent case law on this topic, as well as recommendations for international commercial practice. Therefore, this book will be of interest to both academics and legal practitioners.

The International Sale of Goods Revisited

Genre: Law

The contributors to this volume, well-known experts from Europe and the US, analyze various issues relating to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). With its current global network of 58 Contracting States, the CISG is widely applied in practice today. To make the growing case law on this subject matter readily accessible, the UNCITRAL Secretariat in Vienna has set up a reporting system for national court decisions relating to the CISG. The extensive documentation already collected there and elsewhere will surely have a lasting impact on the ongoing scholarly debate on this topic. The present book is intended to contribute to this debate by addressing controversial issues relating to the interpretation and application of some important provisions of the new sales law. In addition, several authors also deal with the development of international principles of contract law, such as the Principles of European Contract Law, the UNIDROIT Principles and the lex mercatoria . In view of the increasing number of such rules, a discussion of the CISG would be incomplete without taking account of the relationship of the Convention to these principles as well.

Is the Vienna Convention on International Sale of Goods Too Much Influenced by Civil Law and Should it Contain a Rule on the Passing of Property

Essay from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Law, grade: Distinction (84%), The University of Sydney (Faculty of Law), course: International Business Law, language: English, abstract: INTRODUCTION The Vienna Convention on International Sale of Goods [The Vienna Convention] is by far not the first attempt to harmonize international commercial code - there is a history of efforts to harmonization that goes back to the beginning of the 20th century. In 1930 the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law [UNIDROIT] was created in Europe. It developed its first draft sales law in 1935 and resumed its efforts in 1951 producing a draft commercial code which was circulated until the early 1960's. The first successful intermediate stage was reached, when in 1964 The Hague Conference adopted the Uniform Law for the International Sale of Goods [ULIS] and the Uniform Law for the Formation of Contracts [ULF]. High expectations accompanied the signing of the Hague Convention on Sales, but only a small number of countries ratified the Hague Convention and its application was strictly reduced to these member states. "It was especially disappointing that the Hague Conventions were not ratified by some of the signatory states - such as France and the United States - which had exercised considerable influence on the formulation of their rules." Despite the partial failure of the Hague Conventions international efforts to harmonization of sales law were still going on. In 1966 the United Nations founded The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law [UNCITRAL] which gave top priority to establishing a uniform international trade law. The efforts of a group comprised of 14 nations lead to the first draft text of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods [CISG] which was "deliberated at the eleventh session of UNCITRAL in 1978 in New York" and then circulated "among the governments of UN member states for t
