Origin of Goods Inconsistent with the Letter of Credit

A certificate of origin should certify the origin of the goods. 












For example, when a letter of credit indicates “origin of the goods: Japan”, a certificate of origin or a statement on any stipulated document indicating a different origin of the goods is to be considered a conflict of data, discrepancy.

As per letter of credit rules and international standard banking practices a certificate of origin must certify the origin of the goods as indicated in the letter of credit. If 
issuing banks determine that the certificate of origin is not reflecting correct origin of goods, they raise a discrepancy which is known as origin of goods inconsistent with the letter of credit.

Discrepancy Example: Origin of Goods Inconsistent with the Letter of Credit: 

A letter of credit has been issued in SWIFT format, subject to UCPURR latest version, with the following details:



Field 45A: Description of Goods and or Services: Aluminum Round Bars 15000 kgs. Delivery Terms: FOB Port of Jebel Ali, Dubai, UAE Incoterms 2010.
