The DOCDEX system is a rapid and cost-effective means of resolving letter of credit disputes through an expert decision. Cases are decided by a panel of three impartial experts having experience in, and knowledge of, trade finance transactions. Said experts are selected from a list maintained by the ICC Banking Commission. The experts’ decision is further scrutinized by the Technical Adviser to the ICC Banking Commission to ensure that it conforms to applicable ICC Banking Rules and/or international standard practice in trade finance.

Covering cases from 2013-2016, this is the fourth volume in the series of DOCDEX Decisions. It includes 30 Decisions providing valuable insights into the reasoning behind the experts’ final judgments on the disputes in question.
Various versions of ICC rules have been covered: UCP 500/600, URC 522, URR 725, URDG 458/758 and ISBP 681/745.

A significant development that has been introduced in this collection is the inclusion of an abstract for all decisions. This approach allows for an encapsulation of key information and summarises each conclusion.
Two important indices are also available:
• Cross-reference of each DOCDEX decision against the relevant ICC rules
• Cross-reference to keywords in both the abstracted and full versions of the decisions.

The e-pub includes a copy of:
• the DOCDEX Rules,
• Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP 600) and
• International Standard Banking Practice for the Examination of Documents (ISBP)
