[The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) approved the draft convention at its tenth session held from May 23-June 17, 1977, in Vienna. This draft convention on the international sale of goods is the fourth legal text to be drawn up by UNCITRAL. The other three are: the Convention on the Prescription (Limitation) in the International Sale of Goods [11 I.L.M. 1000 (1972)] adopted in 1974 by a U.N. Conference; Convention on the Carriage of Goods by Sea [15 I.L.M. 701 (1976)] approved by the Commission in 1976 and will go before a U.N. Conference for final action in 1978; and the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules [15 I.L.M. 701 (1976)] approved by the Commission in 1976 and recommended by the General Assembly for use in the settlement of disputes arising from international commercial relations.

[The text of the Commission's decision on the draft convention on the international sale of goods appears at I.L.M. page 1468.]
