The use of electronic means to conclude contracts necessitates the determination of the time of the conclusion of those contracts. This is important in order to determine the term of the contract, its enforceability, as well as determine the capacity of the contracting parties. This paper aims to address this issue as regulated in the Bahraini and Emirate legislations in light of the United Nations’ ECC. To arrive at this, it is necessary to address the issues raised by electronic communications and underline the provisions of electronic transactions laws relating to the time of transmission and receipt of electronic messages.
