The Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is one of the most significant documents ratified in the field of harmonization of substantive law. Accession to the CISG needs a precise study of its pros and cons. The convention decreases costs, improves legal certainty, modernizes domestic law and increases trade. Simplicity, certainty, fairness, success and uniform interpretation are among those reasons stuck to by the proponents of accession to the CISG. But opponents of the CISG call into question the harmonization coming from the convention and believe that it is a reconciliatory and unworkable document, and because of this, legal certainty is not secured by this Convention and contracting parties often enter a reservation to it in international transactions. However, the general assessment shows that the reasons given by the proponents are stronger and the Convention improves the legal system, decreases costs, boosts trade and economy and consequently brings about public welfare and with regard to these results, accession to the Convention is recommended.
