The Organisation for the Harmonisation of the Business law in Africa
The Organisation for the Harmonisation of the Business law in Africa (Ohada) was founded by the Treaty relating to the Harmonisation of Business Law and was signed in Port-Louis (Mauritius) on 17 October 1993. Its main object is to find a remedy for the legal and judicial insecurity existing within and among the member-countries.
Ohada regroups 17 French spoken countries from West and Central Africa.
UIHJ is in close contact with Ohada and organises regularly seminars in the Ohada countries, through its Training Unit for African Judicial Officers (Ufohja), training seminars on Uniform acts established by Ohada.
