33 Decisions by ICC Experts
Resolving Real Life Disputes About Documentary Credits

Collected DOCDEX Decisions 1997-2003 contains some 33 Decisions resolving real life disputes about UCP 500 as decided by ICC expert panels over a seven-year period.

DOCDEX is a rapid, cost-effective dispute resoution system intended to resolve disputes involving ICC rules on documentary credits (UCP 500). First introduced in 1997, it was expanded in 2002 to cover the ICC Uniform Rules for Collections (URC) and the Uniform Rules for Demand Guarantees (URDG).  DOCDEX has
been used by practitioners worldwide who need quick decisions on outstanding conflicts.

How DOCDEX Works

In the DOCDEX process, the parties (or one of them) present their arguments on a dispute, plus all documents relating to it, to the ICC International Centre for Expertise. The Centre then appoints a panel of three experts to decide the issues in the case. The process normally takes 30-60 days, with most cases resolved within 30 days. As a result, lengthy and expensive court cases can often be avoided.

Now, for the first time, all of the DOCDEX Decisions taken over a seven-year period have been collected in a single volume. Indexed, with references to the relevant articles of the ICC rules, the Decisions answer a broad range of questions, among them:

  • Can a standby letter of credit subject to UCP 500 also be the subject of a DOCDEX case?
  • Should banks be required to investigate the means of delivery on a bill of lading?
  • When can typographical errors in a credit be called a discrepancy?
  • Must the issuing bank pay when one of the documents, an inspection certificate, is not presented to it?
  • Is there a discrepancy when a master's receipt is signed "for the master"?
  • What is the impact of an alleged forgery of a bill of lading?
Value-added

This indexed volume of DOCDEX Decisions gives you insight into the thinking of ICC experts who must judge difficult cases involving ICC rules. As such,  Collected DOCDEX Decisions 1997-2003 is an invaluable companion to the rules themselves.
