The new URDG do not merely update URDG 458; they bring the rules for demand guarantees into the 21st century; the rules are clearer, more precise and more comprehensive. Furthermore they are innovative, featuring a number of original treatments for payment contingencies dictated by the development of practice and the need to avoid disputes.
Over the years the URDG have gained increasing worldwide acceptance by international and national lawmakers including UNCITRAL and the World Bank. Now they are destined to become the international standard for all demand guarantee practice.
For the first time since the adoption of the URDG 758, members of the URDG Drafting Group will come together to give a full public presentation on the new rules. They will take you through each stage of the guarantee lifecycle, drawing your attention to new provisions that you and your colleagues will need to know.
Panellists will highlight all the key changes and demonstrate how a consistent use of the URDG 758 and their accompanying model guarantee form can significantly curb the rate of rejection of demands and increase the certainty of the instrument.
