Info

COMPETENCY, AND CAPACITY IN GLOBAL TRADE, international level standards is a must for African Traders, Clearing & Forwarding Agents / Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders , Legal Practitioners, Bankers, Supply Chain and Logistics Service Providers. Things are changing – ALWAYS. 

 

Key recent changes emergence of the AfCFTA (The African Continental Free Trade Agreement), the World Trade Organisation Agreement on Trade Facilitation (WTO ATF), the new South African Customs Acts, in line with the WCO Revised Kyoto Convention (RKC), The WCO SAFE Framework of Standards, IMO Safety and Security Standards, and the like, AND NOW, the NEW International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Incoterms® 2020 Rules......


The Importance of the new Incoterms® 2020 Rules 


Many practitioners may consider the new Incoterms® 2020 rules version as “easy” or “unnecessary”, however they will become critical in our daily operations for many years, and will serve as the framework and standard for dealing with delivery terms within international sales contracts and related issues, including:

 

  • Arranging and paying for transportation;
  • Customs clearance and Security compliance obligations;
  • The impact of payment relevant to the chosen term; 
  • Duty and VAT payments;
  • Arranging compliant documentation and notices; 
  • Agreement on the default point where risk is transferred;
  • New insurance obligations;
  • Order of the legal articles and application thereof.

 

One of the most significant roles of Incoterms rules, is ensuring that all international trade is performed in a globally accepted, best practice manner. Buyers and sellers who do not use the Incoterms rules correctly may suffer from extra costs, risks, misunderstandings and disputes, caused by the continuous need to consider variations in language and shipping practices. Luckily, the Incoterms® 2020 rules will clarify all obligations and allow shippers to maintain standard practices without having to constantly negotiate new terms.

 

The new Incoterms® 2020 Rules reflect the ever-changing nature of today’s international trade system. Over the course of the drafting process of the Incoterms® 2020 rules, several revisions were made to ensure that the rules clearly and accurately reflect present-day trade practices globally. All of the above will be covered with a slant towards the best practice of Letters of Credit, used in conjunction the Incoterms® 2020 rules, as Mr Ronai is also a qualified and certified Documentary Credit Specialist (CDCS) by the London Institute of Banking and Finance.
