The extension and complication of external economic links and the emergence of new forms of trade transactions turn a commercial contract into a volumetric complex legal instrument. Its preparation demands considerable time, as it is necessary to work at all its significant clauses thoroughly. The formulations of the contract must guarantee their unambiguous interpretation and conform to existing trade customs and judicial practice. But as a rule, a transaction is urgent, and the parties do not have enough time to develop each of its terms for every new occasion. Hence, various standard forms of documents are being widely practiced in international trade. Usually, diverse typical forms of the contracts are meant here. However, the typification of document circulation stretches to a considerably larger extent, and very different typical documents can be mentioned while speaking of external economic activity. The article discusses: 1. Standard contract-sample; 2. Standard contract-offer (acceptance); 3. Standard contract-form; 4. General conditions; 5. Contract of accession, etc.
