Conclusion (FINISH): conclusion of a formal agreement or termination or agreement of a transaction of Cambridge Dictionary concludes [with disapproval] formula and definitively and settle (an agreement) “an attempt to conclude a ceasefire” “negotiations for the conclusion of a new agreement have failed.” Oxford Dictionary As you can see in the excerpts below, the conclusion/completion/agreement/settlement of a transaction or other multi-party agreement is important. The fundamental answer to your question is therefore “yes”, “contract concluded” means that it has been agreed. In accordance with Article 72(1) of the Civil Code, the contract is concluded as soon as the parties agree on the provisions under discussion when two parties negotiate the conclusion of a contract. Thus, Polish legislation cannot claim that a contract has been concluded if the parties have reached agreement on only part of the contractual provisions to be negotiated, even if they are part of the essential provisions (Paragraph 154(1) BGB). However, other jurisdictions treat this issue differently (e.g. B Article 1583 of the Belgian Civil Code). In strict terms, if you are talking about the event (i.e. the meeting of the agreement) once it happened, there should have been a verb in the past to create a correct sentence (for example.B the contract was concluded). But the quoted wording (without a verb) would be normal at the end of the agreement itself, especially directly above the signatures of the parties: this is where the present applies because they actually conclude the agreement by adding their signatures. Questions of liability for fault at the time of conclusion of the contract are excluded from the scope of the Rome I Regulation. In accordance with Article 1(2)(i), obligations arising from negotiations prior to the conclusion of a contract are excluded from the scope of the Regulation.
On the contrary, those questions are governed by Article 12 of the Rome II Regulation (864/2007), which provides that, for non-contractual obligations entered into before the conclusion of a contract, whether concluded, the law applicable to the Treaty or the law which would have been applicable to the conclusion of a contract. Article 12 of the Rome II Regulation refers to the applicable law, as defined in the conflict-of-laws rules of the Rome I Regulation (where applicable). Once the contract is terminated, it may have expired (for example.B. on a preset date) or have been terminated (for example. B by one or both parties, according to the criteria set out in the agreement). .
