How to Handle Export LCs & BLs: Understanding the Revised ISBP 821 & Clarifications to UCP 600 - 10th run

All it takes is just one discrepancy in export letters of credit (LCs) and bills of lading (BLs) to result in non-payment. To avoid discrepancies, those handling LCs and BLs must know the UCP 600 and ISBP 821 thoroughly. While UCP 600 was effective in July 2007, the ICC Banking Commission approved the latest ISBP (International Standard Banking Practices) in July 2023 to supplement and clarify the UCP 600 further, detailing key principles of document preparation, and rules for the examination of documents. What was previously considered a discrepancy is now no longer valid discrepancies for an issuing bank to reject payment. It's imperative that importers, exporters and bankers alike are updated with the UCP 600 and ISBP 821.

This workshop is case-based, interactive and highly practical.
