This section contains collection of judgements from Slovakia, where the courts applied CISG in order to resolve a dispute. These decisions present a manner in which the Slovak courts apply CISG and to what extent the domestic law shall affect the final decision. The published judgements should help both legal scholars as well as subjects and authorities involved in application of law when trying to interpret particular provisions of the Convention by presenting the actual application and interpretation of these provisions in case law. It is necessary to stress that judgements of courts in Slovakia are not legally binding to future cases and legal consideration included in them can only be treated as a form of non-binding interpretation of the Convention. Nevertheless, courts and other authorities applying CISG should be aware of the existing case law, in order decide uniformly in similar cases and thereby to protect one of the basic principles of rule of law – legal certainty by creating an established system of practice of the courts. Furthermore, the knowledge of manner of application CISG by Slovak courts can help merchants and lawyers to predict an outcome when asserting its claims under CISG before the courts of the Slovak Republic.


Texts of the judgements are published in anonymous form, respecting privacy of persons involved in these cases and protecting their personal data. The judgements are cathegorized according to the court that issued them. If you are interested in studying the judgements according to the article of CISG they refer to, click here.
