Declarations and reservations: The U.S. has filed an Article 95 declaration.
"Pursuant to article 95, the United States will not be bound by subparagraph 1(b) of article 1."
Comments: This is an authorized Article 95 declaration. It restricts the role of private international law in determining the application of the Convention 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.
