In 2013, the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (Unidroit) drafted and published the Model Clauses for the Unidroit Principles of International Commercial Contracts (PICC). This article examines the significance, scope, and effect of these Model Clauses for international contract practice. A basic distinction is drawn between the use of these clauses before domestic courts and international arbitral tribunals. In addition, the article explores the use of the PICC as a means to supplement or interpret uniform law instruments such as the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
