On 3rd December 2004 Member State Experts convened in Brussels to kick-off the work of the Network of Member State Experts on the Common Frame of Reference. It is envisaged that the Network of Member State Experts will meet regularly at similar workshops 2-4 times a year.

The objective of the workshop was to inform Member States on the developments of the European contract law project and on the process of preparation of the Common Frame of Reference (CFR), to gather from Member States their views on the possible content of the CFR and an indication of the problems that the CFR should solve. It is foreseen that the CFR will form a toolbox of principles, definitions and model rules of contract law based on best solutions drawn from examination of existing contract laws.
