CIDIP VII - Consumer Protection

Brazil Joint Proposal

In 2003, the government of Brazil submitted a draft Convention on Consumer Protection and Choice of Law. In 2008, Brazil with the governments of Argentina and Paraguay, submitted a revised proposal titled “Buenos Aires Proposal,” which constitutes a simplified version of the final Brazilian proposal.

The purpose of the Draft Convention is to provide more legal certainty to all parties in international consumer contracts. The Draft Convention provides choice of law rules that offer most favorable treatment protection to consumers in their international contracts and transactions with professional providers of goods and services.

The governments of Canada and the United States submitted written comments on the Brazil Joint Proposal.
