What Was The Most Important Result Of This Agreement

The modern principle of loyalty is also reflected in the change of circumstances provision of Article 6.111. According to that provision, a party is obliged, under certain conditions, to enter into negotiations for the adjustment or termination of the contract if performance becomes excessively onerous due to a change in circumstances. That provision is not based on examples drawn from national law, but on commercial practices as expressed in `hardship clauses` in the context of renegotiation obligations. *23 The most important result was the creation of the World Trade Organization, almost half a century after the unsuccessful attempt to create an International Trade Organization (slide 2). And with the creation of the WTO, multilateral rules were extended to new areas of trade. As a concrete example of the (relative) shortcomings of the PECL in this regard, I would like to mention the provision on the adaptation of unfair contracts (Article 4:110): a party may avoid a contractual term if, contrary to the requirements of good faith and fair trade, it causes a significant imbalance in the rights and obligations of the parties under the contract. This adjustment rule is essentially copied from the EC Directive on unfair terms in consumer contracts and extends the provision of the Directive to contracts other than consumer contracts. This extension appears to increase the role of animal welfare principles in the PECL. The (other) important limitations on the scope of the Directive, which it .B. from a Nordic point of view, relatively traditional and very conservative, but only minimum requirements are included in the directive, but are all maintained and even converted into rules in the CELP. Estonia has decided, for various reasons, including its pre-Soviet historical context, to base the development of its private law in principle on the German model.

*1 From the point of view of Europeanisation, this seems at first to be a step backwards – why (look back) the law of a particular country when legal concepts in Europe are increasingly moving across borders. However, Estonia did not choose German law to find a model that could be copied as such, but to find an appropriate and necessary point to anchor its legal culture. *2 A comparative approach and a multitude of sources from different locations were used for concrete content decisions. *3 Although not all national legal systems agree with such a clause *12, it is to be expected that the PECL may become relevant in practice in this way. By way of comparison, it should be noted that the UNIDROIT Principles have already been applied in some arbitral awards as generally accepted principles, even though the parties have not expressly referred to them*13 , and that such an award has been upheld by a United States court. *14 Through such practices, the PECL can also influence the progressive development of national commercial law. .
