LEGISLATIVE HISTORY

Legislative history of CISG article 59: Match-up with 1978 Draft to assess relevance of Secretariat Commentary


1978 Draft article 55

The buyer must pay the price on the date fixed by or determinable from the contract and this Convention without the need for any request or other formality on the part of the seller.

  

CISG article 59

The buyer must pay the price on the date fixed by or determinable from the contract and this Convention without the need for any request or compliance with any formality on the part of the seller.


Editorial comments

"Without the need for any request or other formality" has been replaced by "without the need for any request or compliance with any formality". Otherwise, these provisions are identical. The Secretariat Commentary on 1978 Draft article 55 should therefore be relevant to the interpretation of CISG article 59.
