This chapter considers termination as a remedy for breach of contract under the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL). The PECL provisions on termination for non-performance are similar to Scots and South African law in a number of important respects, not surprisingly in view of the common law influence in all three systems. Under all three systems, a non-fundamental delay may be elevated into a fundamental one by an ultimatum, and all three know the concept of anticipatory breach.
