This full-day course includes case studies and workshop sessions to give a total understanding of how the Incoterms ® rules work, how they may affect your business requirements as well as focussing in on the changes cover by the 2020 revision. Using the wrong ICC Incoterm when trading goods worldwide exposes companies to greater risk and cost in the form of lost goods or unnecessary disputes. This is why it is so important to understand ICC Incoterms® 2020 rules and use them correctly, so that companies can trade with one another safe in the knowledge they are following international best practice. Since the last revision in 2010, much has changed in global trade and, for UK/EU companies especially, uncertainty about future trading agreements means contract terms must be resilient and effective to minimise disruption to trade.
For this revision the ICC want to ensure that companies get the right standard of internationally recognised advice as they know the terms are still mis-understood. The ICC-UK has recognised Strong & Herd’s expertise in this area, and we have been licensed by the ICC UK as an official training partner for the 2020 set. Simple mistakes can be easily avoided if ICC’s unique international expertise and resources are made accessible to, and utilised effectively by, businesses. With our courses you are assured of receiving accredited, world-class, certified training, support and practical expertise and delegates will receive an ICC-UK accredited training certificate. The new terms will be launched in the UK on 15th October 2019 and come into force on 1 January 2020.
