Books on business, contracting and trading internationally
By Johnny Herre and Oscar Tiberg
The ICC Transport and Incoterms® 2020 Handbook is a new publication providing clarity and practical support to those in the transport sector working on transactions involving the Incoterms® rules. When goods need to be transported from a seller to a buyer, in most cases an independent carrier is involved.
Basic foundational models including Term Sheet, Shareholders, Directors Services, Employment and Confi dentiality Agreements
An international business transaction requires a precise and detailed underlying contract. However, it can be expensive and time-consuming to draft such a contract oneself. The International Chamber of Commerce, the world business organization, has responded to the market's need for a reliable and equitable model with the ICC Model International Sale Contract, which provides a solution in presenting a set of clear and concise standard contractual conditions for the most basic international trade agreement.
International turnkey construction projects are often complex transactions, requiring correspondingly complex legal documentation. Moreover, many such major construction projects are an important element in international development, and it is vital that the arrangements put in place be durable, clear and equitable.
In our increasingly virtual world, manufacturers and companies who want to remain competitive need to have a website, not only for the promotion of their products, but also for the sale of their goods to consumers. Consequently, those who decide to sell online are faced with the problem of complying with consumer protection rules and need to establish online conditions of sale to consumers (B2C), which are substantially different from those used when selling through their traditional channels, since they imply compliance with special rules protecting purchasers, such as the pre-contractual information to be provided, the right of withdrawal, and the means of payment.
Focussing on Investment, this book provides an overview of rules applicable to making and protecting foreign investments. It will enable the business community, in-house counsel, and government counsel to better understand the types of protection provided by international investment agreements and investment contracts, as well as the range of issues that arise in the arbitration of investment disputes.
ICC Rules for the Use of Domestic and International Trade Terms
Force majeure and hardship are commonly invoked in international trade in case of occurrence of unforeseen events which make performance impossible or impracticable (force majeure) or which substantially upset the equilibrium of the contract (hardship). In the first case the party successfully invoking force majeure will be relieved from performance, while in the second case the party subject to hardship will be entitled to renegotiate the contract and in certain cases to obtain its adaptation to the changed circumstances.
The ICC Model International Sale Contract is a time-saving tool for traders, business men, lawyers and all parties involved in important import/export- and cross-border sales transactions. It applies mainly to the sale of manufactured goods but can serve as an example to work on for other types of products as well.

Distributorship contracts are one of the most frequently used means for organizing the distribution of goods in a foreign country. Almost every company engaged in international trade has some distributors abroad, which means that most exporters will be faced with drafting an international distributorship agreement at some point. But one of the difficulties that traders face when drawing up contracts is the lack of uniform regulations. This means that parties must refer primarily to the rules set out in their agreements, which in turn makes the careful drafting of such contracts vital.
Before entering a business transaction, companies of all sizes have to consider how to protect sensitive information by drafting a non-disclosure agreement. As each company tries to build a confidentiality contract in its favour, the process may often cause long discussions, delays and higher transaction costs.
Practice has shown that companies and businesses involved in international trade frequently use commercial agency and distributorship contracts to distribute their products abroad

Retention of title clauses are designed to preserve the right of sellers to their goods, often until the purchase price is paid in full, and are frequently included in general conditions of sale. In cross-border transactions, it may be particularly hard to know whether a retention of title clause will be enforceable. Retention of title is embedded in national or property law, as well as security and insolvency law, making it exceedingly difficult to harmonize.
