Sale of Goods Law Reform: an Irish perspective
The Sale of Goods Act 1893 still dominates Irish law, despite being amended in 1980 and given a European twist in 2003. In 2008, an expert group, the Sales Law Review Group, was established to review the law of sale and to make recommendations for a scheme of legislation capable of providing a statutory sales law framework appropriate to modern-day conditions and needs. The Group reported finally in late 2011, with over 120 recommendations for reform. The proposals have been welcomed by Government, although legislation implementing the proposals is still awaited. This paper seeks to place these proposals in a common law context and critically evaluate the main recommendations for reform.
