England is not a signatory to the CISG. The Sale of Goods Act 1979 applies to B2B sales transactions governed by domestic English sales law. It defines contracts of sale in its s 2(1) as

(…) a contract by which the seller transfers or agrees to transfer the property in goods to the buyer for a money consideration, called the price.

Furthermore, the Sale of Goods Act 1979 provides for rules on, inter alia,

  • capacity to buy and sell,
  • price,
  • warranties,
  • conformity of goods,
  • transfer or property,
  • passing of risk, etc.

As to B2C sales transactions, these are governed by the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
