The Handbook on the Interpretation and Application of the Vienna Convention on International Sale, as the title implies, is a study on the interpretation and application of this international treaty, intended primarily for students interested in the subject of international trade law. This was elaborated with the contribution of the close university professor doctor Mihai Sandru, of Hilda Sumalan, as well as of mine.

The research was supported by the Ius Iuventutis Circle, its members being united around a common cause, namely the desire to know the field and participate in the international commercial arbitration competition in Vienna: Laurentiu Bucur, Diana Chibulcutean, Patricia-Stefania Crisan, Iulia Diana David , Robert Gilyen, Alex Suciu, Andreea Ruxana Grebla, Andrei Maris, Maria Andreea Moldovan, Raul Miron, Cristina Nicolaescu.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is the main regulation on the adoption of uniform rules applicable to contracts for the sale and purchase of international goods. Currently, 84 states have acceded to that convention, including Romania, which acceded in 1991.

The first part of this paper analyzes the acceptance of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods by Romanian Courts in light of recent jurisprudence - arbitral and judicial decisions - both from the personal and material perspective of the Convention.

In the second part of this paper, which is intended to be a manual to facilitate the easy understanding of each article of the convention, various comments have been made. Moreover, both main ideas and questions were extracted for each article, a method that facilitates students' work of assimilating concepts.

The last part of the textbook contains synthesis elements of CVIM, which are very useful for those who are interested in understanding the interpretation and application of the convention, but also for teachers when they are interested in testing students by reference to topics.

I am very pleased to write these lines thinking that I have managed together with newly initiated researchers in the field to develop this paper, which will be useful both to those who focus on the field of international sale of goods, either on university benches or those of the arbitral tribunals or panels. In this way I also express my gratitude for the fruitful collaboration I had especially with Professor Mihai Sandru and Iulia David in the thematic advocacy competitions held at Petru Maior University in Tirgu-Mures, in the spring of recent years.
