The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) provides information on the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). CISG was opened for signature at the concluding meeting of the Conference which took place in Vienna, Austria on April 11, 1980. Since that time, 84 states are parties to the CISG.

The CISG applies to contracts of sale of goods between parties whose places of business are in different States: (a) when the States are Contracting States; or (b) when the rules of private international law lead to the application of the law of a Contracting State.

The CISG can apply automatically to your transactions with foreign buyers or suppliers of raw materials, commodities and manufactured goods.

This is because the CISG is a self-executing treaty.

 

Haiti has not yet accented to the CISG.
