    Learning to Use Model Contracts


    © International Trade Centre, International Trade Forum - Issue 4/2002

    The need for easy-to-use model contracts will continue to grow as more and more businesses - without the means to consult specialist lawyers - negotiate and draft international trade agreements themselves.

    The following four articles focus on a new generation of model contracts, where to find them and how to use them. The International Chamber of Commerce and ITC have created model contracts and provide advice and know-how to help companies deal with the legal aspects of doing business internationally. Model contracts from these organizations are now available for international sales of manufactured goods and perishable items, for different types of agreements with intermediaries and for joint ventures.
