Global and cross-border businesses may require rules of evidence that are specifically tailored to their operations. Dutch law is an excellent fit. The Dutch Code of Civil Procedure (article 153 DCCP) allows the parties in an NCC case to enter into an evidentiary agreement which, for purposes of their dispute, will replace the ordinary law of evidence. Such an agreement is enforceable except where by law the parties are not allowed to make their own arrangements (e.g., certain corporate or insolvency issues), or where the ordinary Civil Code rules provide otherwise. Two of these rules are article
6:248 (reliance on a clause is unacceptable in the specific circumstances) and article 6:233 et seq. (a clause in general terms and conditions is unreasonably onerous). Article 8.3 of the NCC Rules deals with evidentiary agreements.
