ABA SECTION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW - 20
APRIL 2012
CHOICE OF LAW THAT MATTERS – APPLICATION
OR EXCLUSION OF THE CISG FOR INTERNATIONAL
SALE OF GOODS TRANSACTIONS
TAKEAWAYS
Dr. Christopher C. King / Hunter Douglas N.V.
CONFORMITY OF GOODS / TIME OF
DELIVERY / REMEDIES
• CISG is definitely more PRO-SELLER than UCC,
(perfect tender rule, rejection as opposed to
damages).
• However:
– there is a slight advantage for BUYER in the CISG in
force majeure (impossibility rather than
impracticability)
– Where Buyer has sufficient bargaining power to
obtain agreement a contractual penalty, CISG with
underlying civil law may be an even better tool to
secure compliance with the contract
Dr. Christopher C. King / Hunter Douglas N.V.
IP RIGHTS / IMPLIED WARRANTY
• CISG is definitely more PRO-SELLER than UCC,
since the implied warranty only goes to IP
violations KNOWN TO SELLER.
• Parole evidence rule in UCC may or may not
be preferable in a specific case. The multiple
exceptions significantly reduces its importance
in practice.
Dr. Christopher C. King / Hunter Douglas N.V.
IMPLIED WARRANTY FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE /
MERCHANTIBILITY – PERMITS / NOTICE
REQUIREMENTS
• Both schemes seem to reach the same result
in the hypothetical.
• Jurisprudence on CISG rejecting permits as
implied warranties makes it possible that CISG
is also PRO-SELLER here, but there is an
argument that UCC is even more restrictive on
fitness for a particular purpose. However, the
same facts may give rise to a merchantability
claim.
