He must take care of the conformity of a new treaty with general rules of the laws in practice and previously accepted legal commitments of the party which he represents.
He must also take care of the legal-technical correctness and necessary precision of the text: clear and non-ambiguous formulation, appropriate final and transitory provisions.
