Commercial letters of credit are the lifeblood of international trade. For more than 85 years, the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP) - the International Chamber of Commerce's rules on documentary credits - have governed letter of credit transactions worldwide.
UCP 600 contains important new provisions in the fields of transport, insurance and compliance, which will form the basis of letter of credit transactions for years to come.
The revised UCP includes a "Definitions" article designed to clarify the meaning of key terms, a changed practice for giving a notice of refusal and other modifications you will need to know. It also includes version 2.0 of the eUCP - the 14 articles of ICC's supplement to the UCP that govern presentation of documents in electronic form.
Since its inception, the UCP has remained a vital component of international trade. Bankers, traders, lawyers, transporters, academics and all who deal with letter of credit transactions will refer to UCP 600 on a daily basis.
