Chapter Summary

Without a doubt, the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) represents a landmark in the process of international unification of law. The importance of CISG is further demonstrated by the fact that the number of decisions rendered by both State courts and arbitral tribunals in its application is rapidly increasing. In view of its intrinsic merits and world-wide acceptance, CISG was of course an obligatory point of reference in the preparation of the UNIDROIT Principles. In some cases the parties themselves had expressly chosen the UNIDROIT Principles either as the sole legal basis for the decision by the arbitral tribunal or in conjunction with other sources of law.
