WEBINAR Standby Letter of Credit
Topic: Standby Letter of Credit, Standby subject to UCP 600 & ISP98, Questions & Answers

With continuing convergence of standby letter of credit and guarantee operations in many banks, more and more bank specialists - specialists on bank guarantees - are now required to become fully conversant with standby letter of credit operations.

Standby letter of credit is the same purpose instrument as the demand guarantee, but, on the other hand, it differs from it on many operational aspects. There are many differences between UCP 600, ISP 98 - the rules for standbys and URDG 758 - rules for demand guarantees.

This Seminar is a must for:

Bank specialists in guarantee and standby letter of credit departments, as well as other interested specialists in the bank front or middle office, as well as lawyers, auditors, compliance specialists would certainly welcome this webinar. Also business people using these instruments would benefit enormously from the event!
