Galexia's commentary on the UN Convention on Electronic Contracting documents - September 2007
From the 29th to the 31st of August, an international conference on the United Nations Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts (UNECIC) was held in Hanover, Germany.
The UNECIC conference was aimed at analysing and interpreting the text of the new UN ECIC-Convention and promoting its application.
Chris Connolly addressed the conference on two broad issues:
1) The Scope and Exclusions of the Convention (Articles 2, 3, 19 and 20) as they stand; and
2) Using the Convention to Harmonise the domestic regulation of Electronic Contracting (including a practical case study on the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) E-Commerce Project).
A paper is now available, which outlines the scope and exlcusions of the convention. This is an early working draft of the final conference paper, intended for future revision and publication in a book on the Convention (Kluwer, mid 2008). Commentary on the document is welcome, and can be emailed to [email protected].
