• 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.
