CISG's Critical Mass Continues to Grow

El Salvador and Montenegro have recently become the 68th and 69th countries to have acceded to, accepted, approved, ratified, or succeeded to the CISG.

Montenegro became a Contracting State effective retroactively to June 3, 2006, when the former Serbia and Montenegro notified the United Nations that it would thenceforth be two countries, with the Republic of Serbia succeeding to, inter alia, Serbia and Montenegro's status as a CISG Contracting State.

El Salvador, which acceded to the CISG on November 26, 2006, will become a Contracting State effective December 1, 2007.

In the interim, Paraguay, which acceded to the CISG on January 13, 2006, will become a Contracting State effective February 1, 2007.

Ghana and Venezuela, which signed the CISG in 1980 and 1981, respectively, have yet to accede to, accept, approve, ratify, or succeed to the CISG.  Therefore, they do not qualify as Contracting States for purposes of Article 1(1)(a).
