History of CISG-online
The website that became CISG-online was first developed and launched in spring 1995 by Professor Dr. Dres. h.c. Peter Schlechtriem, M.C.L. and his team at the Albert-Ludwigs-University, Freiburg i. Br. (Germany), initially under the name "Rabel Website on the CISG". Subsequently, it was renamed "CISG-online".
From 2002–2017, the website was run by Professor Dr. Ingeborg Schwenzer, LL.M., at the University of Basel (Switzerland). During this time, it formed part of the “Global Sales Law” Project.
Since February 2017, Professor Dr. Ulrich G. Schroeter at the University of Basel (Switzerland) has been running the website. Together with his team, he completely redesigned the database.
In August 2020, the new CISG-online platform was launched under the internet address www.cisg-online.org.
