APPLICATION OF CISG: No. Dicta reference to the CISG at paragraph 56 of the judgment:

"56. As regards the admissibility of the ancillary claim for payment of interest, it must be observed that it is generally accepted in the laws of the Member States that a delay in payment involves a loss for which the creditor must be compensated. Similarly, Article 78 of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods provides that if a party does not pay the price or any other sum which is due, the other party is entitled to interest on that sum. Community law recognizes an obligation to pay such compensation as a general principle of law (see, by way of example, Case 238/78 Ireks-Arkady v Council and Commission [1979] ECR 2955, paragraph 20, Case C-152/88 Sofrimport v Commission [1990] ECR I-2477, paragraph 32, and Joined Cases T-202/96 and T-204/96 Van L÷wis and Alvarez-Cotera v Commission [1998] ECR II-2829)."
