Parties to international sale of goods transactions often exercise their rights to choose a governing law and refer disputes to arbitration . Where their choice is incomplete, as is the case where the contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is chosen, complex conflict of laws problems can arise, including disputes over the governing limitation period. While such disputes are traditionally resolved using conflict of laws methodologies, this article argues a superior solution can be achieved through procedural late. Through a simple discretion, arbitral tribunals may apply the limitation period from either the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) Principles 2004 or the UN Limitation Period Convention. Such an approach makes determination of the governing limitation period a simpler process, allowing parties to focus their attention on what they are really concerned with—the merits.
