The official mandate of THE CNUDCI, created by UNGA in 1966, is to promote “the gradual harmonization and unification of international trade law” through conventions, model laws and other instruments that cover key areas of trade, from dispute resolution to the supply and sale of goods.

Article 1 also lists exceptions to the scope of the convention, i.e. transaction agreements made by a consumer for personal, family or budgetary or family, estate or labour law purposes.
