Editorial remarks

EDITORS: Franco Ferrari and Albert H. Kritzer

CISG issues ruled upon:

Applicability. The CISG was held inapplicable. Citing Article 100(2), the Rb Haarlem (District Court) held the CISG inapplicable "[a]s the contract of sale which was concluded between the parties dates from a period before the date on which [this] convention came into force for Germany (1 January 1991) and the Netherlands (1 January 1992)". The Hof Amsterdam (District Appeal Court) did not overturn this conclusion.
