Unless the context otherwise requires, this article applies to transactions in goods; it does not apply to any transaction which although in the form of an unconditional contract to sell or present sale is intended to operate only as a security transaction nor does this article impair or repeal any statute regulating sales to consumers, farmers or other specified classes of buyers.

(Dec. 30, 1963, 77 Stat. 639, Pub. L. 88-243, § 1.)



Prior Uniform Statutory Provision

Section 75, Uniform Sales Act.


Section 75 has been rephrased.

Purposes of Changes and New Matter

To make it clear that:

The Article leaves substantially unaffected the law relating to purchase money security such as conditional sale or chattel mortgage though it regulates the general sales aspects of such transactions. "Security transaction" is used in the same sense as in the Article on Secured Transactions (Article 9).
