Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s)
German term or phrase: Vertragsteil
Excerpt from an (Austrian) construction contract:
Falls die bevollmächtigten Vertreter des AN oder des GU beim Abnahmetermin nicht anwesend sind, hat innerhalb von sieben Tagen ein neuerlicher Abnahmetermin stattzufinden. Fehlt auch an diesem Termin ein bevollmächtigter Vertreter des AN oder des GU, ist der nicht anwesende *Vertragsteil* schriftlich über das Ergebnis der Bauherrenabnahme zu informieren.

Could this mean "contract party [and/or his representative]? If not, any advice welcome."

Party to the contract

Vertragsteil + "party to the" gets 18 hits.
This is why I could never translate into German.
I do not understand why this is not "part of the contract / agreement"
