Editorial remarks

EDITORS: Franco Ferrari and Albert H. Kritzer

CISG issues ruled upon:

Applicability/Exclusions from the Convention. This case involves a contract entered into on 11 March 1990 between buyer (Germany) and seller (Netherlands) for the purchase of a caravan (a type of recreational vehicle). Citing Articles 2(a) and 100(1), the CISG was held inapplicable on two counts: because this was a sale of goods bought for personal, family or household use; and, in any event, because the contract was concluded prior to the effective date of the CISG in either country.
