The law of the Netherlands is applicable. The Vienna Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CIGS) is not applicable, nor is any other international regulation the exclusion of which is permissible.

Only the civil court that has jurisdiction in the place of establishment of the contractor may take cognizance of disputes, unless this would be contrary to peremptory law. The contractor may deviate from this rule of jurisdiction and apply the statutory rules governing jurisdiction. The parties may agree a different form of dispute resolution such as arbitration or mediation.
