General Provisions on Rights and Duties of Parties

The general principle in the Convention is that risk passes when goods are taken over by the buyer (article 67(1). The Convention provides in article 67 a primary rule for cases in which the sale involves carriage of the goods (which is obviously the typical situation in international sales), a special rule for goods sold while in transit (article 68) and, in article 69, a rule for other cases. The passing of property is irrelevant to the passing of risk under the convention.
