"Two criticisms levelled at Article 65 Ulis led to a change in regard to the CISG. First, Article 60 states that the taking of delivery is an obligation of the buyer; secondly, it limits the preparatory acts required of the buyer to those which could reasonably be expected of him in order to enable delivery to be made. Article 65 ULIS refers to 'such acts as are necessary'." Hager in Commentary on the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods, Peter Schlechtriem ed. (Oxford 1998) 477 [citations omitted].
