CISG: participating countries - Singapore Go to Database Directory || Go to List of Contracting States


Effective date: 1 March 1996

Declarations and reservations: Singapore has filed an Article 95 declaration.

"In accordance with article 95 ...the Government of the Republic of Singapore will not be bound by sub-paragraph (1) (b) of article 1 of the Convention and will apply the Convention to the Contracts of Sale of Goods only between those parties whose places of business are in different States when the States are Contracting States."

Comments: This is an authorized Article 95 declaration. It restricts the role of private international law in determining the applicability of the CISG when both contracting parties do not have their relevant places of business in Contracting States. See the Cross-reference editorial analysis of Article 1 for further discussion of this subject.
