Following the successful ratification by the ICC Banking Commission of the URBPO, ICC and Coastline Solutions have developed a new URBPO Online Training Course. .

The Course is designed to ensure proficiency in this area of trade finance work.

This online course allows you train your staff and customers in all aspects of the URBPO, from the basic concepts through to a full detailed analysis of the rules.

The course content is written by Gary Collyer, Senior Technical Adviser to the ICC Banking Commission, and Chair for the development of the rules in respect of the Bank Payment Obligations (URBPO).

The URBPO Online Training course contains 4 hours of online instruction and training on the Uniform Rules for Bank Payment Obligations (URBPO)

The course includes detailed treatment of all sections of the URBPO Rules including:

  • Background to the URBPO, what is a BPO and how it works?
  • The parties to a BPO and the benefits of using a BPO?
  • The scope and application of the URBPO
  • The definitions and terminology associated with the URBPO
  • Detailed analysis of the URBPO messaging structures
