Abstract:     
The subject of this paper – which is dedicated to Ole Lando – is to examine the relationship between the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) of 1980 and the Proposal for a Common European Sales Law (CESL) which the EU Commission published on 11 October 2011 and to compare both instruments. However, only major differences will be discussed, primarily with respect to the regulations for businesses. The focus lies on the objectives, opt-in and opt-out approach, scope of application, structure, and style of regulation of both sets of rules. The conflict of laws problem will be addressed, as well as specific matters such as the rules regarding formation of contract, and the rights and obligations of the parties.

This contribution is published in this Research Paper Series as a part of the Liber Amicorum Ole Lando with the generous and exceptional permission of the rights owner, Djøf Forlag.
