The UN Convention on Electronic Contracting - January 2005
Galexia conducts a wide range of strategic projects on e-commerce law in Australia and the region, and the new Convention on electronic contracting is of particular importance in this area.
The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Draft Convention on the use of electronic communications in international contracts is one of the most significant recent developments in international electronic commerce law. UNCITRAL has now finalised the text of the convention and expects to discuss approval of the Draft Convention at a full Commission meeting in mid 2005. The Draft Convention could then be presented to the UN General Assembly and may be open for ratification by the end of 2005 or early 2006.
