Comments on the match-up

CISG Article 22 "goes back to Article 10 ULF. . . . In contrast to . . . ULF, Article 22 refers merely to 'withdrawal' (and not to 'revocation') and so makes a clear distinction (as does [CISG] Article 15(2))." Schlechtriem in Commentary on the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods, Peter Schlechtriem ed. (Oxford 1998) 157.
