Incoterms – Level 2 – BCC Accredited

September 5, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Incoterms (International Commercial terms) are rules for International Trade which allocate the division of responsibility between the Shipper (usually the supplier) and the Consignee (usually the buyer) in the process of shipping the goods from one to the other.

INCOTERMS® rules can be invaluable for shifting costs and liability associated with exporting, importing and shipping and for avoiding disputes down the road but only if companies understand how to use them properly.

Ensure that all international trade parties clearly understand their responsibilities in performing trade under the given contract with this half-day course on Incoterms. In just one afternoon of training you will eliminate potential inconsistencies in language by giving all parties the same definition of specific terms within your trade agreements.

One of the best ways of avoiding costly shipping catastrophes is to take this half-day course on proper use of INCOTERMS® rules, published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and updated in 2010. This course is BCC accredited and qualifies for the BCC Foundation certificate programme. Delegates wishing to receive a BCC Certificate will be given a short assessment at the end of the course.

Key Learning objectives and outcomes of the course:

  • What are Incoterms?
  • What are the benefits of using Incoterms for both buyer and seller?
  • Explanation of the risk and responsibility for buyer and seller.
  • The obligations for both buyer and seller.
  • Explanation of each term outlining the pros and cons of each.
  • The commercial implications of using Incoterms.
  • The correct application for the correct mode of transport.
  • Issues that can be avoided by understanding how to use the terms.

While many businesses employ INCOTERMS® rules in their commercial contracts, these contracts are often negotiated by individuals who don’t really understand what the INCOTERMS® rule means and don’t know how to use them effectively. This course explains some of the benefits of using INCOTERMS® rules and how they can improve your international commercial contracts.

This afternoon course directly follows the morning course “Customs and Procedures” as part of a back-to-back International Trade training day. It is suitable for all levels and all departments involved with the sales, financing and shipping of products. This course is BCC and CPD Accredited from a registered and course-approved International Trade trainer.
