IHR headnote

Reproduced from Internationales Handelsrecht (2/2009) 63

"1. The party who relies on a termination of the contract as per Art. 29 CISG must prove the necessary agreement. The creation of the agreement to terminate is ruled by Art 14-24 CISG. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the obligations in the restitution of the performance are a mirror-image of the primary contractual obligations.

"2. Questions relating to the authority of the acting person are ruled by the national law underlying the contract."
