Brazilian Senate Approves Text of the CISG
18. October 2012 | Global Administrator
At its plenary session of October 16th, 2012 the Brazilian Senate approved the text of the CISG. This was the final step as far as the Brazilian legislature is concerned. The next step is the promulgation of the text by the Executive Branch (the Brazilian Presidency).
Then the instrument of accession must be subsequently deposited with the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Completion of this process would make Brazil the 79th contracting state to the CISG.
The editors of the CISG Brazil website have recognized the important contribution of Prof. Dr. Ingeborg Schwenzer, LL.M. especially by attending the 2010 Seminar and the 2011 "Albert H. Kritzer" Conference which took place in São Paulo and
constituted very important moves to promote awareness on the CISG in Brazil and help push the accession process further and faster.
