View all recognition for Litigation and Dispute Resolution
In 1988, the United States and 10 other countries ratified the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), which is sometimes referred to as the Vienna Convention. Since then CISG has been ratified by more than 70 other countries, most recently by Vietnam in December 2015. CISG applies to most commercial transactions in which goods are sold by a company in one country (the selling country) to a company in another country (the buying country). When the selling country and the buying country have ratified CISG, then many disputes arising out of the transaction will be governed by CISG, such as whether a contract for the sale of goods was formed, the terms of the contract, whether a breach has occurred, defenses to a claim for breach, and the damages recoverable by the claimant.
