Standby LCs
A common need for a standby letter of credit is driven by an importers concern regarding compliance to the quality/specifications of the product and/or a shipping schedule compliance. Here the standby letter of credit covers the exporter’s nonperformance. Should the exporter fail to ship, the importer may recover the advance payment by drawing upon the standby letter of credit issued in their favor.
