in such a case, it is not possible to refer to the previous use by the party. With regard to the general situation in which the parties have long applied a provision in a certain way? According to the classic application of the rule of parol proof, the conduct of the parties after the performance of the contract had no influence on the interpretation of the contract. This formal and unrealistic view began to be abandoned even in the common law system. According to the principles of swedish treaty interpretation, the effective application of the agreement by the parties is an important indication of the true importance of the agreement. Section 3 of the Sales Act states that the practice of the parties may constitute a contractual element. This regime is based on general principles of contract law. The importance of a waiver clause is therefore unclear. As far as I know, no court decision has focused on the case. It is possible that the clause would make the burden of proof somewhat heavier for those who, unlike the text of the treaty, wish to assert an interpretation based on the effective application of the treaty.

This Agreement is binding on the parties, their assigns and assigns. The word „Boilerplate“ literally means „steam boiler plate,“ which offers little guidance for understanding the term. The Boilerplate clauses refer to the standard clauses, which are almost always at the end of the Anglo-American agreements and deal with certain general issues that do not specifically depend on the nature and extent of the agreement. The term „boilerplate“ has an ambiguous etymological origin. One theory says that boilerplate sheets were useful in many contexts and that this property meant that the term was also used in a transferred sense. The existence of clauses in agreements is largely due to the common law system`s emphasis on the interpretation of text contracts, which has traditionally not been an essential element in the application of analogies or general principles. There is therefore a great need for regulation in the agreement itself, which is resolved, for example, in the Swedish legal system, through the application of existing legislation or general legal bases. It would be too long to give a more complete description of the interpretation of the contract under the common law system, but suffice it to note that the system leads to a large number of standard clauses, often displayed at the end of agreements. These clauses normally, but not always, perform a real function when English or American law applies….
