Passing of risk Overview

Articles 66-70 deal with the passing of risk. The regime differs from the common law. At common law, prima facie the risk passes with the title, so that the buyer becomes burdened with the risk when he acquires a title. The Convention, of course, does not deal with the passing of title (see Article 4(b)), so that different rules with a different pivot point or points needed to be devised.
