Standby Letters of Credit

A standby letter of credit can be issued as an alternative to a Cross-border Guarantee, or to satisfy the requirements of the U.S. market.

A Standby Letter of Credit has all the characteristics of a Cross-border Guarantee except that it must have an expiry date, which can be extended at regular intervals at the option of the exporter, to satisfy the requirements of the buyer.
