CISG-online was first developed and launched in spring 1995 by the late Professor Dr. Dres. h.c. Peter Schlechtriem, M.C.L. at the Albert-Ludwigs-University, Freiburg i. Br./Germany. In 2002, the website migrated to its current address at cisg-online.ch and has since been run by Professor Dr. Ingeborg Schwenzer, LL.M., Basel/Switzerland.
Features of cisg-online.ch
What distinguishes CISG-online from other CISG databases?
CISG-online.ch not only features all relevant CISG case law, but it also offers a unique multiple search mechanism. You may not only search cases by CISG-online and CLOUT number, date, jurisdiction, deciding court/arbitral tribunal, but also by seller’s and/or buyer’s country, the goods involved and most importantly, by the (key) provisions cited in the decision/award. This allows you to precisely define your search. Furthermore, you may search the 50 most recent cases, which allows you to stay up-to-date as regards the international developments in the area of the CISG.
