This chapter is an overview of the Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and its general issues. As uniform law, the CISG, when implemented in the Contracting State and to the extent that it is applicable, displaces both that State's domestic law and private international law rules concerning the sale of goods. Uniform substantive law like the CISG is to be distinguished from uniform private international law conventions and from transnational regulations. The CISG lays down a substantive law to be applied regardless of where a dispute is litigated. Reservations apart, the same law will be enacted in identical terms by each Contracting State.
