Keywords: European sales law, European Union countries, Economic policy, European Private law


In this article Dr Maren Heidemann discusses arguments in favour and against the legal basis of the Proposal for the Regulation of the European Parliament (EP) and the Council on a Common European Sales Law (CESL), published as COM (2011) 635 final of 11 October 2011. It considers the international private law as well as some individual substantive rules of both the Regulation and the actual sales law. The author makes suggestions on how to adjust and complement this instrument in order to achieve what the EU legislator is setting out to do, and what the legal and trading community, including consumers need.
