Legislative history of CISG article 70: Match-up with 1978 Draft to assess relevance of Secretariat Commentary
1978 Draft article 82
If the seller has committed a fundamental breach of contract, the provisions of articles 79, 80 and 81 do not impair the remedies available to the buyer on account of such breach.
CISG article 70
If the seller had committed a fundamental breach of contract, articles 67, 68 and 69 do not impair the remedies available to the buyer on account of the breach.
CISG article 70 contains several word changes, none of which is in any way substantive. The Secretariat Commentary on 1978 Draft article 82 should therefore be relevant to the interpretation of CISG article 70.
