Letters of credit have been around for many years, but they still remain a mystery to many bankers. Commercial letters of credit are commonly used to facilitate the purchase and sale of goods, and standby letters of credit are commonly used to secure obligations. More recently, letters of credit are being used as a substitute for surety bonds, workers compensation insurance, construction contract bonding, governmental licenses, purchase price holdbacks, and environmental cleanup obligations. There is substantial liability and risk to the financial institution which issues a letter of credit. Last year, new revisions were made to the Uniform Customs and Practices for Documentary Credits creating the new UCP 600 (2007 Revision). This seminar will discuss the basic rules with respect to all letters of credit and then will address the general rules of the new UCP 600, ISP 98 and the UCC Article 5.
