ICC Incoterms®2020 Launch, London - 15th October, 2019

FIRST ACCESS TO OFFICIAL ICC INCOTERMS® 2020 TRAINING

ICC Incoterms® 2020 rules define the responsibilities of buyers and sellers for the delivery of goods under sales contracts. They are the authoritative rules for determining how costs and risks are allocated to the parties.

Updated every 10 years, the latest edition of the ICC Incoterms® 2020 rules will be launched in mid-September 2019 for entry into force on 1 January 2020 – come to our UK launch event to learn everything you need to make sure you are compliant with the new rules.

Part I of the UK launch will give those that attend the opportunity to hear from the experts that helped develop the new rules, what the impacts of the changes might be and why ICC Incoterms® should be used. Part II will give delegates early access to official ICC Incoterms® 2020 training and practical advice from our recognised training partners on how the changes should be adopted.

Those that attend the morning session will receive a discount to undertake the ICC recognised training that same afternoon.
