Incoterms: This is your opportunity to understand fully the comprehensive aspects of international commercial terms ‘Incoterms’. If you do not know your DAP from your DAT, or get confused over FOB versus FCA then this is the course for you. 

You will be guided through each of the Incoterms, explaining the costs involved and whether these should be met by the seller or the buyer. We will identify the transfer of risk points for each of the 11 Incoterms, and clarify the issue of insurance.

Export Licence Controls: This course explains the roles of BIS (Business Innovation & Skills) and their SPIRE system. Whether you are selling goods designed for military use, or dual-use items or whether you are not sure, the classification process will be explained along with the importance of end-user undertakings. Export licence rules do not only cover the physical movement of goods, but also encompasses software and technology irrespective of whether or not the goods are departing from the UK.


Benefits for your organisation

This is a unique opportunity to learn about these two very different aspects of international trade.

The new Incoterms 2010 rules will be examined in detail, ensuring awareness of which four Incoterms have been removed and the two extra Incoterms that have been introduced.
You will learn how to use these international commercial terms to understand the costs and risks when moving goods internationally, thereby avoiding disputes with your customers.  Export licence compliance is essential to all exporters. Companies large and small must equally comply with licensing rules. This course will ensure you aware of the SPIRE system and how to keep updated on the frequent changes.
