Recodification Guide for Entrepreneurs No. 10

As mentioned in the previous issues, the new Civil Code (“NOZ”) introduces significant changes to obligation law. The most important change is the unification of the contractual types in one act (the NOZ), thus removing their current duplicate civil-law and commercial-law regulation. The previous issues were dedicated to the general rules of contract law and purchase and lease agreements. In this issue, we would like to outline the most important changes in other important contractual types, such as contract for work, mandate and similar agreements, e.g. the contract on commercial representation. Finally, we describe the most important changes in the field of liability for damage and possibilities of its contractual limitation.
