International Standard Banking Practice 2023

Since its initial publication in 2002 (Publication 645), International Standard Banking Practice (ISBP) has become an invaluable aid to trade finance professionals when creating documents for presentation under, or for the examination of documents presented under, a documentary credit. It comprises a compilation of banking practices that are to be applied when working with documentary credits that are subject to UCP 600. ISBP demonstrates how the principles and content of UCP 600 should be integrated into day-to-day practice by providing readers with detailed practices that are to be considered and applied when working with different trade documents. ISBP also provides coverage of documents which are not specifically mentioned in UCP.
