A public meeting on electronic commerce was held, under the auspices of the Advisory Committee on Private International Law, on September 30, 2011, in the Office of the Assistant Legal Adviser for Private International Law, 2430 E Street, N.W., SA-4, South Building, Washington DC. The meeting was chaired by a representative of the Office of the Assistant Legal Adviser for Private International Law.

The meeting was convened to discuss upcoming work of Working Group IV (international electronic commerce) of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). At its 2011 meeting, the Commission decided that the Working Group should be reactivated to undertake work in the area of electronic transferable records. The attendees discussed potential work of the Working Group in that regard as well as a recommendation being considered by the United Nations Center for Trade Facilitation and E-business on Signed Digital Evidence Interoperability.
