The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia succeeded to the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) last November, effective retroactively to November 17, 1991, bringing the number of Contracting States to 70.
Paraguay and the Russian Federation signed on to the U.N. Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts in March and April 2007, respectively, becoming the 9th and 10th signatories. However, because none of the signatories has yet ratified or acceded to this Convention, it is not yet in force anywhere.
