    The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) came into force internationally on 1 January, 1988. 2018 marked the 30th anniversary of its coming into force. So far, CISG has been favourably received by the international community as it helps remove legal barriers for international trade and diminishes uncertainties caused by the private international law system and facilitates contract negotiations in international transactions.

    Three fundamental issues are addressed by the CISG:

    • the formation of a contract;
    • the obligations of the seller; and
    • the remedies available to the buyer, and the obligations of the buyer and the remedies available to the seller.

    As we celebrate over three decades of this unique experiment at unifying and harmonising the law on international sale contracts and count the increasing membership of the international convention, it is also time to revisit a few specific issues that have arisen from the application of the convention.
