Spyridon V. Bazinas

Subjects: development studies, development economics, economics and finance, development economics, financial economics and regulation, law - academic, finance and banking law


The chapter presents the most salient features of the UNCITRAL Legislative Guide on Secured Transactions and explores the reasons that explain why the Guide is being used as a reference tool for the modernization and harmonization of secured transactions laws. The reasons lie with the fact that it is a text prepared by an authoritative international legislative organ like UNCITRAL and combines flexibility with certainty, transparency and predictability, and coordinates with registration, insolvency, IP and private international law. Equally important is the fact that the Guide, together with texts of other organizations, presents states with a comprehensive, efficient and internally consistent secured transactions regime.
