In Singapore, contracting parties are governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The CISG attempts to bridge the gap between different legal systems around the world by creating a uniform law for international sale of goods. The CISG applies in Singapore when both parties hold their businesses in different Contracting States. Singapore later became a party to the CISG and is now bound to its international laws that pertain to imports, shipping, and insurance. Singapore has also adopted an implementing statute that makes the CISG part of Singapore law—the Sale of Goods Act. Singapore’s Sale of Goods Act imposes some responsibilities on the seller which are automatically included in every contract of sale. One of the terms is that the sold goods must be of satisfactory quality. There are a variety of terms that allow either the seller or consumer to seek legal proceedings, which is why having the right team of lawyers to legally support your business in any lawsuit is essential to a smooth exchange between different countries.
