Presentation

#UIAInternationalContracts

Seminar presented by the UIA with the support of the Vienna Bar Council (Rechtsanwaltskammer Wien)

A lawyer for my sourcing contracts? Absolutely! In particular if such contracts involve the global supply chain. Why?

Global interdependence of suppliers, scarcity of resources and COVID 19 have created new challenges for international trade.

Recent new regulations on supply chain compliance as well as increased awareness by consumers and the general public carry substantial risks for businesses. How do I ensure compliance with these new regulations regarding unfair commercial practices, protection of the environment and human rights – not only in my own company, but also in upstream members of my supply chain?

How do I make that supply chain work? Companies will be required to avoid, mitigate or eliminate violations and to clearly define obligations and liabilities of all actors in their supply and procurement contracts. .
The purpose of this seminar-workshop is to analyse the basic issues of cross-border contracts with reference to international supply contracts and to discuss and show solutions for the new issues. Special focus will be on challenges in the food and pharma industry.

Legal experts, academics and practitioners will share their experiences and in practical workshops, we will implement such principles through clear and effective contractual clauses.

Mark your diaries now, save the date and make sure to register!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Vienna!
