Launched in 2013, the ICC Model International Sale Contract sets out a
comprehensive set of rights and obligations for sellers and buyers, helping traders,
business people and lawyers save time in international transactions. Designed
for the sale of manufactured goods, the model may also serve as an example for
other types of products.
With interactive sessions, real-life scenarios, and hands-on advice, the
training day is run by one of the Model Contract’s co-authors, Christoph Martin
Radtke, Partner, Lamy & Associes, France; Co-Chair, Incoterms® 2010
Drafting Group; and Member, ICC Commission on Commercial Law and Practice,
together with Emily O’Connor, Executive Secretary, ICC Commission on Commercial
Law and Practice.
“For anyone involved in international trade, this training is a great
chance to really understand the new ICC Model International Sale Contract, and
hear straight from some of the people who helped draft it,” said Ms O’ Connor.
ICC experts will guide participants through the print and digital
versions of the ICC Model International Sale Contract, which incorporates the
Incoterms® 2010 rules, as well as the new Bank Payment Obligation (BPO) rules
developed jointly by the ICC Banking Commission and SWIFT. Each step will be
made clear, from the contract’s general characteristics to scope of application,
termination and resolution of disputes. And of course, participants will get
their own copy of the contract to keep.
The upcoming training day builds on the success of the first ICC Model
International Sale Contract training, which took place last October and
received tremendously positive feedback from participants.
“You will get the best knowledge in international commercial
transactions from the most experienced professionals worldwide,” said Saeed
Abumelha, Contracting Adviser, AECOM, Saudi Arabia, one of many enthusiastic
participants at the first ICC Model International Sale Contract training.
The ICC Model International Sale Contract training is preceded by a two-day
Masterclass on the Incoterms® 2010 rules, on 5-6 March 2014.
