ISBP

What is International Satandard Banking practices? How they used in letter of credit payments?
 









UCP rules are written in a general manner. They are not detailed enough to cover the day-to-day practice. ISBP was prepared in order to fill the gap between general principals of UCP and the daily practice. UCP 500 was the latest version of the rules, which were governing the documentary letters of credit at the time of ISBP was being prepared. So first ISBP was constituted with the aim of explaining UCP 500 rules more explicitly. Another aim of the drafting commission of the ISBP was to achieve internationally accepted standards for examination of documents under documentary letters of credit. In order to succeed on this aim commission asked various ICC national committees and members to send checklists on how documents were examined in their organizations. After 14 meetings and 4 different drafts, the ISBP was finally put into its final shape.
