UCITA 제6장에서는 이행수락의 기준(what is acceptable performance)에 관한 전통적 규칙을 컴퓨터정보거래의 맥락에서 맞추어 변형·수용하고 있다. ⅰ) 전자적 自動制止裝置(automatic restraint)와 관련하여 당사자들을 보호하는 규정(제605조), ⅱ) 계약해제에 관한 한 일반원칙으로는 (소위 "完全한 履行提供(perfect tender)"의 규칙이 아니라) "重大한 契約違反(material breach)"의 원칙이 적절하다는 점을 밝힌 점, ⅲ) 당해 정보가 고정되는 유형의 매체의 맥락에서 적절한 경우나 實質的 履行不能(impracticability)에 대해서는 UCC 제2편상의 유사한 규칙을 수용하고 있는 점(제B절) 등이 그것이다. 제6장은 또한 특수한 유형의 계약의 경우(제C절)에 적용되는 규칙을 제공하고 있다.


UCITA is the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, and was developed by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL). UCITA is very similar to a previous proposal, UCC 2B, which was abandoned due to widespread opposition. UCITA is a contract law statute that would apply to computer software, multimedia products, computer data and databases, online information, and other such products. It was designed to create a uniform commercial contract law for these products and calls itself "a cyberspace commercial statute." It covers contracts that are generally known as "shrink-wrap licenses."Part 6 of UCITA adapts traditional rules as to what is acceptable performance to the context of computer information transactions, including providing rules for the protection of the parties concerning the electronic regulation of performance ( 605), to clarify that the appropriate general rule is one of material breach with respect to cancellation (rather than so-called  perfect tender), and to carry over the familiar rules of Article 2 when appropriate in the context of the tangible medium on which the information is fixed and for impracticability (Subparts B). Part 6 also supplies guidance in the case of certain specialized types of contracts (Subpart C).
