Ivory Coast admitted to Convention on the Limitation Period on the International Sale of Goods
The Convention has been in place since June 12, 1974, and puts in place rules about the time period in which any legal proceedings connected to an international sales contract must begin. The Convention was amended in 1980 to better mirror the United Nations' Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
All necessary documentation for Ivory Coast's inclusion in the conventions has been submitted. Membership will take effect Sept. 1.
