Footnote The Working Party would like to take this opportunity to thank all National Committees and others for their participation in this work.

Over comments were painstakingly examined and analysed and, in so doing, the WP was able to obtain an insight into problems and practices worldwide – this proved to be of great value and assistance in completing this work. In particular, the WP would like to thank the following National Committees, Associations, and Organisations and individuals, by name. Accordingly, the ICC undertook a review of the Uniform Rules for Collections in Marchand these revised rules, which represent the culmination of the revision work, have were drafted by international experts drawn from the private sector who have worked in ICC Commissions over the last two years.

The review covered changes in collection procedures, technology, and laws and regulations, both national and international.

From the perspective of the ICC, a significant achievement of the revision is that National Committees and experts from all parts of the world took an active part in the discussions and made a positive contribution to the work. These revised rules and their unanimous adoption by members of the ICC Banking Commission, which has a wide international representation, are a source of pride to us all, and the extensive and fruitful international consultation which preceded this work is the hallmark of the ICC.

The commentary, which is intended to give guidance on practical issues and to provide an insight into the thinking of the Working Party, is not meant to replace the rules in any way. The objectives of the Working Party were to review changes in international collection procedures, technology, and laws and regulations both national and international since Similarly, issues that continue to cause problems to practitioners were to be examined to see the extent to which the revision could assist in their resolution.


Additionally, the text and language of UCP were to be examined in order to achieve a degree of harmonisation within the revision. In the course of its work over the last two years, the Working Party examined approximately 2, comments from over 30 countries. In certain cases, such as in considering of Electronic Data Interchange, the Working Party felt that uncertainty on legal issues precluded any attempt to draft rules to cover this aspect at the present time.

Similarly, while the importance of local practices and requirements in certain countries were fully appreciated by the Working Party, it was considered unwise to draft rules to cover such practices and requirements, as they might not be acceptable to the rest of the international community. In considering an extensive range of views and comments, the Working Party had considerable difficulty in evaluating some of them, and, where conflicting views were expressed, the Working Party adopted the point of view closest to, and most consistent with, accepted international practice.

The Working Party, in achieving its objectives, irc not seek to make change for the sake of change and often left the wording of the old rules substantially unchanged. Changes were made only in response to altered practices and requirements and urv resolve practical difficulties encountered by practitioners.

I list below in alphabetical order the members of the Working Party: It was through the generous contribution of their time and the sharing of their knowledge that this revision was accomplished so successfully.

I also wish to convey the gratitude of the ICC for their selfless commitment to this work.
