Where I am it is summer; and I have been hit by the summer feeling.
My summer vacation will start at the end of this week. After that I will close down for 3 weeks. I really look forward to that – BUT before I turn off my computer I will share with you four ICC Opinion reviews that are only available on lcviews.com; one every day…
The first one is Official Opinion R654 / TA647rev, that deals with the language of a CMR consignment note:
Title: All documents in English
UCP 600: N/A
ISBP 745: A21(a)(d)
Topic: Language of documents
Details of the query:
The LC included the following requirement:
“All documents should be issued in English.”
The CMR was rejected for the following reason:
“CMR-not preprinted in English”.
The CMR was pre-printed in French and in Croatian; the document did provide the description of the fields in English on the reverse.
Does the requirement apply to the language in which data on a document is completed, or also to the pre-printed form?
A previous ICC opinion (R.564), stated:
""all required documents must be issued in English” relates to the data thereon that would evidence compliance with the terms of the credit and the relevant provision(s) of the UCP.”
Because the data that is inserted in the respective fields of the CMR document was in English, there is no discrepancy.
This review is written by LC Views.
