Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

Both when the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods was finally adopted by the United Nations Conference on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, held at Vienna from 10 March to 11 April 1980 and when Austria finally ratified this very Convention on 29 December 1987 via depositing the ratification document, the success of this new international legal scheme in respect to contracts that do not halt at national borders was hard to predict. The CISG only disposes of a skeletal character,496 which facilitates adoption by States with different legal backgrounds but also entails the danger of a non-uniform application.From the time when the CISG entered into force in Austria, according to Art 99 (2) CISG on 1 January 1989, 498 Austrian Courts started to closely assess the various issues of this new Convention. Following remarkable initial attempts, first and foremost the OGH paved the way to guidance on how to flesh out the skeleton of the Convention.
