IHR headnote

Reproduced from Internationales Handelsrecht (April 2009) 74

"1. If the contractual document which contains the general terms and conditions of one party including the choice of forum clause are signed only by one party, this is insufficient for a valid jurisdiction agreement under Art. 23 Brussels 1 Regulations.

"2. The place of performance in the sense of Art 5 para. 1 lit b Brussels 1 Regulations is to be determined -- in case of contracts for the international sale of goods - with recourse to Art. 31 CISG. Thus, the place of performance is the place where the goods are initially handed over for transport."
