UCP 600 2007 Revision Approved
By a unanimous vote of 91 to 0, the ICC Banking Commission on October 25, 2006 approved UCP 600, ICC's revised rules on documentary credits.
Commercial letters of credit are the lifeblood of the international trade system and, for more than 70 years, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has established the rules governing documentary credits worldwide.
UCP 600 enters into force on July 1, 2007 and contains substantive changes to the existing rules you need to know now.
a leaner set of rules, with 39 articles rather than 49 articles of UCP 500
a new section of "Definitions", containing terms such as "honour" and "negotiation"
a replacement of the term "reasonable time" with a definite number of days for examining and determining compliance of documents
a new provision concerning addresses of the beneficiary and the applicant
an expanded discussion of "original documents"
re-drafted transport articles aimed at resolving confusion over the identification of carriers and agents.
The new UCP 600 also contains within the text the 12 articles of the eUCP, ICC's supplement to the UCP governing presentation of documents in electronic or part-electronic form.
