What is it about?

This Convention establishes a uniform law on the formation of contracts for the international sale of goods relating to offer, sale and conclusion.

Why is it relevant?

This instrument was replaced by the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The 1980 Convention specifies the criteria for determining an international contract. It also defines sales of goods and sets out a distinction between a contract of sale and a work contract. In 2003, only the United Kingdom, Gambia and Saint Martin remained party to the 1964 Convention. All other States have denounced the Convention in favour of the 1980 Convention.
