ICC Publishes Latest Book in Best-Selling Series on Incoterms® Rules

4505_image002New York, N.Y., May 8, 2013 – The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has published its much-awaited Incoterms® 2010 Q&A : Questions and expert ICC guidance on the Incoterms® 2010 rules, the latest in a series of best-selling books helping readers understand and use the Incoterms® rules to their strategic advantage, according to the United States Council for International Business (USCIB), ICC’s American national committee.

This publication is now at the USCIB International Bookstore.

Comprising more than 80 new questions, Incoterms® 2010 Q&A offers expert guidance on choosing the correct Incoterms® 2010 rules, and thus avoiding costly mistakes arising from dangerous mismatches between the contract of sale and related documents, such as letters of credit and contracts of carriage.

This book includes real users’ questions on the Incoterms® 2010 rules with responses from world-renowned ICC experts. Included in this edition are questions and answers related to previous Incoterms rules contrasted against Incoterms® 2010. This publication contains comprehensive flowcharts and checklists to allow readers choose the correct Incoterms® 2010 rule and manage documents in a sale or purchase transaction, a glossary of commonly used trade terms, and the complete text of the Incoterms® 2010 rules.

“Since being published by ICC in 1936, the Incoterms® rules have become the gold standard worldwide for the interpretation of most commonly used terms in international trade,” said Emily O’Connor, executive secretary of the ICC Commission on Commercial Law and Practice. “This latest installment of the Incoterms® series, by the international body that drafts and maintains the Incoterms® rules, is an invaluable resource for everyone involved in cross-border transactions.”
