LEGISLATIVE HISTORY

Legislative history of CISG article 27: Match-up with 1978 Draft to assess relevance of Secretariat Commentary


1978 Draft article 25

Unless otherwise expressly provided in Part III of this Convention, if any notice, request or other communication is given by a party in accordance with Part III and by means appropriate in the circumstances, a delay or error in the transmission of the communication or its failure to arrive does not deprive that party of the right to rely on the communication.

  

CISG article 27

Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Part of the Convention, if any notice, request or other communication is given or made by a party in accordance with this Part and by means appropriate in the circumstances, a delay or error in the transmission of the communication or its failure to arrive does not deprive that party of the right to rely on the communication.


Editorial comments

CISG article 27 and 1978 Draft article 25 are substantively identical. The Secretariat Commentary on 1978 Draft article 25 should therefore be relevant to the interpretation of CISG article 27.
