Nature of the network

The foundation of the Autonomous Network of CISG Websites is collegiality. The Internet is a very inexpensive and effective way for us to cooperate in this manner.

This is a uniform law network. The world's uniform international sales law belongs to each country and to all countries. To help one another, we share experience and lessons learned. Each national or regional website provider designs its site to best serve traders and counsel of its home market; together we serve the world market. The network is synergetic -- the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
