UCP 600:

Although UCP 600 came into force on 1 July 2007 there are still considerable demands for training and seminars in respect of the ongoing interpretation and practical application of the rules. As Chair of the UCP 600 Drafting Group, Gary is perfectly placed to provide the definitive training material for use by your bank - either internally for staff, or, externally, for your client training and events. Providing your staff with the proper training is crucial to the correct handling of transactions. Agreements can be made whereby Gary could be available for bank sponsored ‘UCP 600' or trade services events to increase your profile on a local and/or international basis.

Other training courses available:

Best Practice in Letters of Credit, Best Practice in Trade Services, Risk Management in Trade Finance, Bank Payment Obligations, ISBP, Standby Letters of Credit (UCP or ISP), Documentary Collections and Guarantees. Courses can be established with an assessment included to gauge the level of learning or knowledge of attendees.

Pricing for these services will vary upon the degree and type of service(s) requested. Further details can be obtained by contacting us at one of the methods shown on the contacts page.
