In the ever-changing game of international trade, it’s important to stay up to date to ensure you continue to operate within the rules of the game.
Whether you are filing a purchase order, packing a shipment, preparing a certificate of origin or are involved in any way in the global import or export trade, there are rules to guide you, and these rules are called Incoterms® 2020.
The only way to know what these rules mean to you and how they apply to your work, is to purchase the complete bundle set.
Updated every 10 years, the most recent Incoterms have just been released ahead of 2020. To help you understand the fundamentals, Bob Ronai, the first Australian and second non-lawyer to be invited by the ICC to join the Incoterms® 2020 drafting group, goes through changes so you can prepare your business for the next 10 years of global trade.
Through the lens that comes with decades of experience in international trade, Bob unpacks the new rules in this two-part webinar and talks through how changes will affect you, your work and your contracts.
Topics covered in these webinars include:
A history of the rules
Breakdown of the 11 rules and applications of each rule
Comparison of rules to see where they are alike and where they differ
How the rules work—or don’t work—with letters of credit
