UCP 500 and 400 Compared was developed to train managers, supervisors and general practitioners of international trade in critical areas of the UCP 500 Rules.  It pays particular attention to those Articles that have been the source of misunderstanding, misapplication and litigation. 

UCP 500 and 400 Compared incorporates, not only the texts of UCP 500 and UCP 400, but also extensive commentaries on the rationale for the rewrite of the Articles.

Whatever your interest in the UCP 500, ICC's UCP 500 and 400 Compared will serve as a unique reference to respond to your questions.  You will want to have this volume on your desk when you engage in a documentary credit transaction.
