Legislative history of CISG article 30: Match-up with 1978 Draft to assess relevance of Secretariat Commentary
Draft article 28
The seller must deliver the goods, hand over any documents relating thereto and transfer the property in the goods, as required by the contract and this Convention.
CISG article 30
The seller must deliver the goods, hand over any documents relating to them and transfer the property in the goods, as required by the contract and this Convention.
CISG article 30 and 1978 Draft aticle 28 are identical except for the phrase "relating to them" rather than "relating thereto". The Secretariat Commentary on 1978 Draft article 28 should therefore be relevant to the interpretation of CISG article 30.
