LEGISLATIVE HISTORY

Legislative history of CISG article 54: Match-up with 1978 Draft to assess relevance of Secretariat Commentary


1978 Draft article 50

The buyer's obligation to pay the price includes taking such steps and complying with such formalities as may be required under the contract or any relevant laws and regulations to enable payment to be made.

  

CISG article 54

The buyer's obligation to pay the price includes taking such steps and complying with such formalities as may be required under the contract or any laws and regulations to enable payment to be made.


Editorial comments

CISG article 54 refers to "any laws and regulations" rather than "any relevant laws and regulations". In all other respects, these articles are identical. The Secretariat Commentary on 1978 Draft article 50 should therefore be relevant to the interpretation of CISG article 54.
