UNCITRAL, Hague Conference and UNIDROIT Texts on Security Interests
Comparison and analysis of major features of international instruments relating to secured transactions
To assist policymakers and legislators, the Hague Conference, UNCITRAL and UNIDROIT have prepared a publication in order to:
(a) summarize the scope and application of these instruments relating to secured transactions and similar financing transactions
(b) show how these instruments work together; and
(c) provide a comparative understanding of the coverage and basic themes of each instrument.
This publication is not intended to be a comprehensive review of each of the instruments.
The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) is an independent intergovernmental Organisation with its seat in the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome. Its purpose is to study needs and methods for modernising, harmonising and co-ordinating private and in particular commercial law as between States and groups of States and to formulate uniform law instruments, principles and rules to achieve those objectives.
