Portugal accedes to the CISG and will become its 94th Contracting State

On 23 September 2020, Portugal deposited its instrument of accession with the Secretary-General of the United Nations and will therefore become the 94th Contracting State of the Sales Convention (CISG).

The Sales Convention will enter into force for Portugal on 1 October 2021.

As reported earlier, the Portuguese government had recently taken the steps required under the Portuguese Constitution for an accession to the CISG. Portugal accedes to the Sales Convention without making any of the reservations authorized by the Convention.
