The article (written in German) deals with the Uniform Sales Law adopted by the Organisation pour l'harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires (OHADA, also known as the Organization for the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa) as part of its "Acte uniform sur le droit commercial general" that entered into force on 1 January 1998. This Act has since provided a regionally uniform set of rules for sales contracts applied by the courts of 16 African States (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Comoros, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Guinea, Bissao Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Chad and Togo).
The present article discusses OHADA Sales Law's provisions and compares them with the United Nations Convention on Contracts on the International Sale of Goods adopted on 11 April 1980 (CISG).
