About the Webinar

Learn about the difficulties corporates face today within trade finance (letters of credit, guarantees, documentary collections) in relation to compliance and how to deal with these issues. Fred Dons, of Deutsche Bank, will show credit professionals how to make fewer mistakes under letters of credit via a discussion about the International Standard Banking Practice (ISBP), a comprehensive guide for handling and examining trade documents under documentary credits, and the Uniform Customs and Practice (UCP) for Documentary Credits, a set of rules on the issuance and use of letters of credit.

The UCP 600 states that a presentation must comply with the terms of the letter of credit, the UCP and ISBP so it’s important to understand the ISBP and how to use it properly. Understanding these practices will help improve presentations under letters of credit and will ensure you will be able to manage your cashflow in a much more controlled way.
