Additional Information

This Convention may exist on its own; however, it is closely linked to two other Conventions signed on the same day: the Convention providing a Uniform Law for Bills of Exchange and Promissory Notes with Protocol (Geneva, 7 June 1930) and the Convention for the Settlement of Certain Conflicts of Laws in Connection with Bills of Exchange and Promissory Notes with Protocol (Geneva, 7 June 1930). These two Conventions supplement the present Convention; therefore it is useful to become a State party to all three Conventions.
