Incoterms 2010

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) had recently revised the Incoterms rules which has been approved on 15 Sep, 2010 known as the new Incoterms 2010 which will be effective worldwide as of 1st January 2011. Incoterms are international rules published by the ICC for the interpretation of trade terms eg EXW, FOB, CFR, CIF, CPT, CIP, FCA etc. Exporters, Importers, Bankers and Insurers, Freight Forwarders and carriers need to be aware of the new changes in Incoterms 2010 which have critical implications to their business especially on the following:

*Carriage of goods between seller/buyer

*Export and Import clearance requirements

*Allocation of costs between seller & buyer

*Assumption of risks for loss and damage

Four terms under the current Incoterms 2000 were taken out. Two new terms DAT (Delivered At Terminal) and DAP (Delivered At Place) have been added.
