    The European Commission (EC) invited ICC to present business views as a stakeholder expert in ongoing European Union (EU) discussions on European contract law.

    The Green Paper*, released in July 2010, is part of a project that began in 2001 to promote the EU internal market by simplifying cross-border trade through the CFR. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has responded to this paper and urged that the proposed Common Frame of Reference (CFR) be kept as an optional instrument.
