Guatemala to become 93rd Contracting State of the CISG
On 11 December 2019, Guatemala deposited its instrument of accession with the Secretary-General of the United Nations and will therefore become the 93rd Contracting State of the Sales Convention (CISG).
The Sales Convention will enter into force for Guatemala on 1 January 2021.
Already in April 2018, the Parliament of Guatemala had passed the necessary law authorizing the country's accession to the CISG. It is not entirely clear why it subsequently took another 19 months until Guatemala's government formally deposited the instrument of accession with the Sales Convention's depositary.
