OVERVIEW

Import and export Letters of Credit are the primary instruments for assuring payment of goods sold internationally. Letters of Credit are issued under the Uniform Customs and Practice standard and can be negotiated by over 30,000 banks worldwide.

This web session is designed to provide attendees with an end-to-end understanding of the export Letter of Credit process. From the beginning of a contractual agreement, through the letter of credit application process and actual negotiation of the L/C, this information-rich webinar will provide techniques that are indispensable to both importers and exporters.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

If your organization is engaged in importing and exporting, then your staff should understand Letters of Credit documentation requirements.
