The Department of International Law (DIL) has recently launched a Secured Transactions Webpage, which provides information about the work of DIL on secured transactions reforms and related information throughout the Americas.
The webpage includes links to
the key OAS legal instruments, in particular,
the Model Inter-American Law on Secured
Transactions and Model Registry Regulations. It
also includes information on the OAS Secured
Financing Project, its objectives, and DIL’s
approach, which emphasizes a participatory
process to strengthen capacity among Member
States engaged in reforms of secured
transactions legislation and effective
DIL considers the webpage as
an important new vehicle to further our outreach
in this field. Throughout this project and in
all of our work, DIL emphasizes international
collaboration by encouraging collective action
among the various entities and organizations
that are involved in secured transactions
reforms. This includes all key stakeholders in
national reform initiatives, other international
organizations, the public sector, academia, the
private sector, and Member States citizens.
The new webpage is part of
DIL’s main website, which covers a wide range of
international law topics, by which this bulletin
is made available to the public.
The webpage is currently available only in
English, but many of the documents are available
in both English and Spanish. A Spanish version
will be made available shortly.
The OAS Secured Financing
Project is made possible through funding from
the Government of Canada.
