Sources About the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts

Courts & arbitrators frequently refer to the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts (PICC) in conjunction with CISG. 

NOTE: In 2010, the Governing Council of UNIDROIT adopted the 3rd ed. of the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts (“UNIDROIT Principles 2010”).  According to UNIDROIT's website, "the UNIDROIT Principles 2010 contain new provisions on restitution, illegality, plurality of obligors and obligees, and conditions, while with respect to the text of the 2004 edition the only significant changes made relate to the Comments to Article 1.4."  Older treatises will not reference the new provisions of the UNIDROIT Principles 2010.
