La Propuesta europea de compraventa

Continuando la entradadedicada a la Propuesta de Reglamento europeo en materia de compraventa y la construcción de un Derecho contractual europeo, me encuentro con la posiciónexpresada el pasado mes de septiembre por el CCBE (la Asociación que agrupa a los Colegios de Abogados europeos), cuyas conclusiones pretenden una más amplia delimitación del ámbito de aplicación del futuro Reglamento:

 “The CCBE therefore urges the EU institutions to take into account the following guidelines when considering the proposal for a CESL:

1.        to adopt the proposed CESL as a useful optional instrument not only for cross-border, but also – by amending Art. 1(2) CESL (Regulation) – for domestic transactions;

2.        to optimise the practicability of the CESL by trying to clarify general concepts such as ‘good faith and fair dealing’ and ‘reasonableness’ as far as possible, e.g. by issuing official comments and standard contract terms for both b2c and b2b-transactions;

3.      to enlarge the applicability of the CESL to any and all businesses, regardless of their size;

4.        to enlarge the applicability of the CESL with regard to digital content over and above its present scope, and, in particular, to create more clarity regarding Art. 70(2) CESL;

5.        to include a reference to “legal principles” (vide Art. 80 CESL) as an appropriate further benchmark for the unfairness test in Art. 86(1b) CESL;

6.       to carefully review the terminology that has been used throughout the proposal, as well as the different language versions in order to avoid any inconsistencies and to optimise the practicability of CESL”.
