English summary

Reproduced from CISG-Belgium database

"The agreement of the parties that Belgian law is applicable leads to the application of the CISG.

"A contract involving the printing of leaflets falls under the scope of the CISG, unless the party who orders the printing undertakes to supply a substantial part of the material necessary for the printing of the leaflets (art. 3 CISG).

"Although the court established that there was minor damage to the goods, it deems the goods to be fit for the purposes for which the goods of the same description would ordinarily be used (art. 35 CISG)."
