What is it about?

The present Convention is one of three 1931 Conventions in connections with cheques. Its provisions intend to harmonize Stamp Laws in connection with cheques.

Why is it relevant?

This Convention is the only multilateral instrument dealing with Stamp Laws in connection with cheques. It provides a regulatory framework for the international use of cheques and promotes international trade by making this method of payment faster and more secure.

Additional Information

Although independently applicable, this instrument is closely tied to the 1931 Convention Providing a Uniform Law for Cheques and the 1931 Convention for the Settlement of Certain Conflicts of Laws in Connection with Cheques. Therefore it is useful to become a Member Party to all three Conventions.
