CIDIP-VII was convened by the General Assembly in June 2003. Member States selected consumer protection and electronic registries as the topics for CIDIP-VII. Member States then designated both Official Government experts and private law experts to participate in the preparatory work for drafting inter-American instruments on these topics.

The General Assembly also requested the Inter-American Juridical Committee to contribute to the preparatory work for CIDIP-VII and request the General Secretariat to explore means of collaboration with international organizations with expertise on the topics. This includes the Hague Conference on Private International Law, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT), and the Inter-American Development Bank, among others, involved in the process of drafting and promoting international instruments compatible with those developed in the CIDIP process.
