Editorial remarks

EDITOR: Albert H. Kritzer

At the time the contract was concluded, the CISG was in effect in seller's country (France), but not in buyer's country (Netherlands). Ruling that French law governs, the tribunal termed the CISG applicable pursuant to Article 1(1)(b).

Notice of lack of conformity. At issue was the timeliness of a notice of lack of conformity. Referring to Article 39(1), the court stated that the parties shall be allowed to prove or disprove whether there was a compliance with its provisions.
