Recitals in the Treaties. Most contracts have under the title and block of the parties, but before the current text of the agreement, a set of paragraphs that are also called «preamble», «recitals» or «where» clauses. As noted above, the recitals have no legal effect, in the absence of a provision to the contrary, when the contract is clear, but if the contract was ambiguous, a court or arbitrator may comply with them to support its interpretation of the intentions of the parties. The best way for the parties to ensure that recitals are not invoked in a dispute is to use clear and clear language in the provisions of the operative part and to ensure that the rights and obligations set out can be directed towards a uniform interpretation (and that this interpretation is the interpretation envisaged). Parties may choose to expressly exclude recitals from their legally binding nature and effectiveness, but this does not guarantee that they will be completely ignored in certain disputes. On the other hand, the recital is fundamentally explicit and should therefore be one of the few (relatively) neutral parties to contain the clearest and most frank statements made by the parties during their negotiations. The answer to this question is more of a form than a substance. It is customary for the beginning of material obligations to be clearly indicated, for example. B with the following language: Zone JV, the territory of the rental properties listed in Annex 2 and all other rental properties requested or acquired for the purposes of this Agreement, or any other area agreed in writing by all joint ventures. The important definitions used throughout the tenor part of the Treaty are more appropriate in the `Definitions` section of the Treaty than in the recitals, since the recitals may not have legal effect. This is not necessarily the approach based on the approach followed in practice, as is the case for the Association of International Petroleum Negotiator (AIPN JOA) 2012 joint operating agreement (AIPN) model. In the OFFICIAL AI JOA, the term `contract` is defined in the recitals with reference to the underlying production-sharing contract, State concession, licence, lease or any other instrument relating to that particular OJA.

The term «contract» is defined in the definition section as «the instrument defined in the recitals of this Agreement, including any enlargement, extension and/or modification». The «Definitions» section defines some specific terms in the agreement. It should normally be included in the operative part of the agreement at the beginning, sometimes towards the end, and certainly not with the recitals. Unless the context requires otherwise, the following expressions have the meaning of this Agreement (including recitals): the approved program and budget means a program and budget relating to joint venture activities for a certain period of time, approved or deemed approved by the Executive Board under this Agreement. An author should also refrain from completing the recitals with additional non-essential definitions (e.g. B the shares, the undertaking or the product) or a multiple of references `(as defined in Article 1)` immediately after each defined term. Title of the preamble. The preamble is usually written with the title Recitals, Where or Background, probably in capital letters or bold. They deal with some key features of the agreement, associated transaction, or transactions of the parties and help the reader understand the background before dealing with the definition section. .
