A seminar was recently organised by the Russian National Committee of the International Chamber of Commerce in Russia (ICC Russia) which was sponsored by Eximbills Technologies (the European arm of China Systems Corporation) and delivered by eBSI. The seminar was the second exam preparation seminar for the Certified Documentary Credit Specialist credential.
The CDCS is the professional certification that documentary credit practitioners undertake to demonstrate specialist knowledge and application of the skills required for competent practice.
The CDCS has been developed in partnership by the Institute of Financial Services (ifs) and the International Financial Services Association (IFSA). It is endorsed by the International Chamber of Commerce.
The two day event was attended by over 50 participants from more than 40 banks and dealt with the complete Documentary Credit process including case studies on ISBP (International Standard Banking Practice) and the Uniform Rules for Reimbursements.
ICC Russia were actively involved in specifying the content of the workshop and provided a significant amount of input into customising the training material to take into consideration local issues affecting the Russian trade finance market.
