Here’s an example of what they look like:. The rule has been made flexible in order to take account of the diversity of national laws. After a long and animated discussion the Group decided to include transport contracts within the scope of the convention.

The Group recognized that this concern was well founded, while maintaining the principle that the choice by the parties of a foreign law where all the other elements relevant to the situation at the time of the choice are connected with one country only shall not prejudice the application of the giulixno rules of the law of that country.

Thus the uniform rules apply to reinsurance contracts. Recourse must be had to Article 4 of the Convention if the chosen laws cannot be logically reconciled.

In the solution adopted by the Group the position is that only laharde place of habitual residence or of the central administration or of the place of business of the party providing the essential performance is decisive in locating the contract. The origin of this paragraph is found in the concern of certain delegations to safeguard the rules of the law of the forum notably rules on cartels, competition and restrictive practices, consumer protection and certain rules concerning carriage which are mandatory in the situation whatever the law applicable to the contract may be.

The exclusion of arbitration agreements does not relate solely to the procedural aspects, but also to the formation, validity and effects of such agreements.

On the other hand, acts or preliminary contracts whose sole purpose is to create obligations between interested parties promoters with a view to forming a giuliwno or firm are not covered by the exclusion.

As regards legal capacity, it should be made clear that the reference is to limitations, which may be imposed by law on companies and firms, for example in respect of acquisition of immovable property, not to ultra vires acts by organs of the company or firm, which fall under subparagraph f.

This Article underlines the universal character of the uniform rules laid down in this Convention.

Article 7 1 adds in relation to the mandatory rules that their nature and purpose, and the consequences of their application or non-application, must be taken into account in order to decide whether effect should be given to them. The object of this proposal was to eliminate the inconveniences arising from the diversity of the rules of conflict, notably in the field of contract law.

Several Belgian lxgarde have contributed to the firm establishment of the rule in theory and in practice Under this paragraph the provisions of the Convention do not apply to contracts of insurance covering risks lagardee in the territories of Member States of the European Economic Community.


Subparagraph c excludes from the scope of the uniform rules in the first instance obligations arising from bills of exchange, cheques, promissary notes.

The second is the urgent necessity for greater legal certainty in some sectors of major economic importance. As for the geographical location lagards the characteristic performance, it is quite natural that the country in which the party liable for the performance is habitually resident or has his central administration if a body corporate or unincorporate or his place of business, according to whether the performance in question is in the course of his trade or profession or not, should prevail over the country of performance where, of course, the latter is a country other than that of habitual residence, central administration or the place of business.

It was added that there would not be unification within the Community on this important matter in international commerce. Most of the delegations favoured the inclusion of gifts where they arise from a contract within the scope of the Convention, even when made within the family, provided they are not covered by family law. According to Article 6 2in the absence of choice by the parties and notwithstanding the provisions of Article 4, the contract of employment is governed as follows: Recent developments in conflict of laws; WTO law; environmental law.

To counter the possibility of changes in the connecting factor “conflits mobiles” in the application of paragraph 2, it has been made clear that the country of habitual residence or of the giulixno place of business of the party providing the characteristic performance is the country feport which he is habitually resident or has his central administration or place of business, as appropriate, “at the time of conclusion of the contract”. Under English law and the situation reeport similar in Scots law and Irish lawin the case where the parties have not expressly chosen the law to govern their contract 20dthe court will consider whether the parties’ choice of law to be applied can be inferred from guliano terms of the contract.

Review of the internal sources and nature of the rules in force in the EEC Member States relating to the law applicable to contractual obligations. First, since the Convention is concerned only with the law applicable to contractual obligations, property rights and intellectual property are not covered by these provisions. Finally it is useful to note that the Group repeatedly stressed in the course of the giuliaho on transport problems that the international conventions took precedence in this matter.

In the other Member States of the Community, however, the body of rules of conflict on the law applicable to contractual obligations is founded only on customary rules or on rules originating in case law.

In this case the law of that other country is applied. M Commercial Conflict of Laws Section: This is not, of course, the characteristic performance of the contract.

Article 3 4 merely refers questions relating to the existence and validity of the parties’ consent as to the choice of the law applicable to the provisions of Articles 8, 9 and The Group took as its starting point the examination and discussion of the questionnaires prepared by the rapporteurs, Messrs Giuliano, Lagarde and van Sasse van Ysselt in their respective fields.


The law of Scotland is to similar effect 20c and Irish law draws its inspiration from the same principles as the English and Scottish legal systems. Winter has truly arrived. At all events the Benelux Treaty on uniform rules for private international law, even though the signatory States have not pursued its entry into force, is clear evidence of their present views on this subject.

Furthermore, in the French text the word “loi” has been replaced by the word “droit” in order to avoid any doubts as to the scope of the rule, which is to cover both “legislative” provisions of any other country and also common law rules. Setting a reading intention helps you organise your reading.

This judgment formed the basis for the second paragraph of Article 13 of the non-entered-into-force Benelux Treaty of on uniform rules of private international law, which provides that “where the contract is manifestly connected with a particular country, the intention of the parties shall not have the effect of excluding the provisions of the law of that country which, by reason of their special nature and subject-matter, exclude the application of any other law”.

For example, there would be a genuine connection when the contract is to be performed in that other country or when one party is resident or has his main place of business in that other country.

The application of paragraph 2 can result in a decision releasing a party who would have been bound under the terms of paragraph 1, but it can never produce the opposite effect of holding that a contract exists which is non-existent by its proper law.

These are precisely the situations in which the uniform rules are intended to apply. It should be stated, however, that the rule in Article 6 also covers the case of void contracts and also de facto employment relationships in particular those characterized by failure to respect the contract imposed by law for the reoort of employees.

In addition, the third sentence of paragraph 4 provides that in applying that paragraph single-voyage charterparties and other contracts whose main purpose is the carriage of goods shall be treated as contracts for lagarfe carriage of goods.

The Hague Convention of 14 March on the law applicable to agency provides in Article 5 that “the internal law chosen by the principal and the agent is to govern the agency relationship between them” According to this dictum, which Italian commentators do not wholly support 30 the choice can be made only at the time the contract is concluded. Consequently, the fact that an employment contract is governed by a foreign law cannot affect the powers which an employee’s trade union might derive from collective agreements in its own country.
