Arbitration - 698
Written Evidence and Discovery in International Arbitration
Dossier VI of the ICC Institute of World Business Law


Publication Number: 698E, 2009 Edition
Author:
N/A
Price:
$230.00 + 10% GST + Shipping and Handling

Description:
The DOSSIER VI deals with documentary evidence at the heart of the arbitral process. Arbitrators are increasingly confronted with new challenges, such as requests for E-Discovery, as well as ever more frequent objections to confidentiality and privilege. Document production may also confront arbitrators with difficult issues of fraud and forgery. Further, this DOSSIER VI may aid Arbitral tribunals that have to decide which rules apply to issues such as the evidentiary value of documents or their admissibility.


With the practice of documentary evidence changing, international arbitrators look for transnational solutions capable of executing a proper balance between efficiency and fairness. Transnational instruments such as the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Commercial Arbitration may need to evolve to accommodate these new improved approaches and solutions.


This Dossier of the ICC Institute of World Business Law seeks to encourage reflection on future practice in relation to documentary evidence in international arbitration. With the publication of Dossier VI, Written Evidence and Discovery in International Arbitration, the ICC Institute of World Business Law fulfills its dual mission: training and acting as a think-tank for the International Chamber of Commerce particularly in the field of arbitration.

ISP 98- International Standby Practices

Publication Number: 590E, 1998 Edition
Author:
N/A
Price:
$50.00 + 10% GST + Shipping and Handling

Description:
International Standby Practices is a new set of rules and best practice for users of standby letters of credit. Though standby letters of credit have similarities with commercial letters of credit and other financial instrument, there are significant differences in scope and practice. A new set of Rules was therefore required for this workhorse of commerce and finance and ISP 98 fills this important gap in the market place.

ISP98 reflects a distillation of practices from a wide range of standby users: bankers, merchants, rating agencies, corporate treasurers, credit managers, government officials and banking regulators. Like the UCP for commercial credits, ISP98 is destined to become the industry standard for the use of standbys in international transactions. 

Another set of invaluable ICC rules, ISP98 offers a precise and detailed framework for practitioners dealing with standby letters of credit.

Publication Number: 650, 2003 Edition
Author:
ICC Global
Price:
$40.00 + 10% GST + Shipping and Handling

Force Majeure literally means “greater force”. Force Majeure clauses excuse a party from liability if some unforeseen event beyond the control of that party prevents it from performing its obligations under the contract. A hardship clause, on the other hand, requests re-negotiation of the contract if the continued performance of one party’s contractual duties has become excessively onerous due to an unforeseen event beyond the control of that party.

The ICC Force Majeure Clause 2003 and the ICC Hardship Clause 2003 has been designed to facilitate the drafting process both for companies and for their lawyers and help them to take unforeseeable circumstances into account.

Authors:
Not specified
Price:
$130.00 + 10% GST + Shipping and Handling

Description
The ICC Banking Commission Opinions series is the only publication of this kind that carries the authority of the International Chamber of Commerce and represents the Commission’s official interpretations of how ICC’s banking rules are to be used in specific situations. This volume not only contains the very first opinions on ICC’s newly revised Uniform Rules for Demand Guarantees, URDG 758, but also includes decisions on UCP 600, ISBP 681, and more.

Harmonizing worldwide banking practice

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) provides bankers and lawyers with essential rules and standards that have over the years helped to harmonize trade finance practice. ICC’s Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP 600) and International Standard Banking Practice for the Examination of Documents Under Documentary Credits (ISBP 681) have become irreplaceable tools for practitioners using letters of credit. However, even though widely praised for their clarity and precision of language, as with any rules, there will always be questions about how they are to be applied in daily practice.

Vital tools for trade finance practitioners

The ICC Banking Commission’s Opinions have for decades provided unrivalled guidance to practitioners and been referred to by judges worldwide in disputes involving ICC rules. This volume covers all 69 official Opinions issued by the International Chamber of Commerce’s Banking Commission during the years 2009-2011. It will help practitioners and scholars to better understand and efficiently use ICC’s trade finance standards.

Collected DOCDEX Decisions 2009-2012 
Decisions by ICC experts on Documentary credits, collections and demand guarantees  


Publication Number: 739E, 2012 Edition
Author:
N/A
Price:
$120.00 + 10% GST + Shipping and Handling

Description:
The DOCDEX system is a rapid and cost-effective means of resolving letter of credit disputes through an expert decision.'Collected DocDex Decisions 2009-2012' included a panel of three experts appointed by ICC’s Centre for Expertise who render decisions based on documents submitted by the disputing parties. The Experts must make their decision within only 30 days after receipt of all documents. In most cases, a DOCDEX decision has deterred parties from going to court.

Covering cases decided from 2009-2012, this is the third volume in the series of DOCDEX Decisions. 35 Decisions provide valuable insights into the reasoning behind the experts’ final judgments on the disputes in question.

Decisions presented in this volume are about some of the most controversial provisions of the latest revision of ICC’s universally used rules on letters of credit, UCP 600. The collection also contains cases dealing with UCP 500, UCP 222, URC 522 and URDG 458. It gives answers to complex questions like: 

  • Does the fact that the Respondent delivered the documents to the applicant make it liable to pay an amount in excess of the documentary credit value? 
  • Is the issuing bank entitled to claim a refund, with interest, of reimbursement made to the respondent when its refusal notice does not accord with the requirements stated under UCP 600?
  • Can an error in the commercial invoice, packing list and certificate of quality – which constituted a reversal of the order of the route of shipment covered by the L/C – be accepted as a typing error? 


The DOCDEX Decisions collections complement the ICC Banking Commission Opinions. Together, they are indispensable aids to practitioners seeking to understand how ICC rules are applied in daily practice.
