Date of Packing List & Commercial Invoice

Postby consultant2b - HK on Wed Apr 03, 2013 1:04 pm

Hi

I was wondering should the dates on packing list and commercial invoice be after the "On Board" date of BL? The LC is silent on this. What is the standard practice? I have been adviced it should be after the BL Date, but what is the logic behind this?

Unless otherwise stated by LC, there's no requirements for invoice and p/l to be dated. If they have issue date, it need not to be after BL date but must not later than presenting date.

if there is no specific provision in LC about the date then these docs can be dated on any date before the presentation date

Logically, documents could be dated after shipment date since in all likelihood, they could be prepared after the beneficiary ships the goods. But definitely no later than the presentation date, as documents cannot possibly be dated or prepared after the date of presenting these documents.

Nothing has been mentioned under UCP for packing list so we will count as per condition stated in the DC and accept packing list if it is as per DC..
And as per Article 18 invoice need not to be dated...

Invoice and Packing List need not be dated

Postby Sweta - India on Sat Apr 06, 2013 6:43 pm

Hi

Invoice and Packing List need not be dated.

In case L/C is calling for dated Invoice and Packing List then as per ISBP para 14 both must not indicate that they were issued after the date they are presented.

Thanks

As per ISBP there's no need 4 dates on Invoice n Packing List unless LC asks 4 it.
