Iran’s Membership in United Nations Commission of International Trade Law (UNCITRAL)

Iran became a member of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The General Assembly has elected 34 members to the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). At the 61st plenary meeting of its 76th session on 15 March 2022, the General Assembly elected Afghanistan, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Colombia, Czechia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Kuwait, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Panama, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, United States and Venezuela as members of UNCITRAL for a six-year term beginning on 27 June 2022.

The UNCITRAL’s aim is to remove or reduce legal obstacles to the flow of international trade and progressively modernize and harmonize trade laws. It also seeks to coordinate the work of organizations active in this type of work and promote wider acceptance and use of the rules and legal texts it develops.

UNCITRAL membership is structured so as to be representative of different legal traditions and levels of economic development, and its procedures and working methods ensure that UNCITRAL texts are widely accepted as offering solutions appropriate to many countries at different stages of economic development.

Also, Iran had been a member in UNCITRAL in 2015. Iran has thus far enacted its Law on International Commercial Arbitration and its E-Commerce Law, based on the UNCITRAL Model Laws. Obviously, Iran's membership can be helpful when it comes to changing the country's trade laws and updating them, given the expansion of trade at the international level.
