UNCITRAL Digest of Case Law on the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods

In light of the large number of CISG-related cases collected in CLOUT, in 2001 the Commission requested a tool specifically designed to present selected information on the interpretation of the Convention in a clear, concise and objective manner. This request originated the UNCITRAL Digest of Case Law on the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, which has further supported the goal of uniform interpretation of CISG.

The Digest, published in 2004 for the first time, is meant to reflect the evolution of case law and, therefore, UNCITRAL is committed to periodic release of updates.
