The ICC Academy is organising a session introducing to the Uniform Rules for Digital Trade Transactions (URDTT) on 27 January 2022 at 20:00 SGT / 8:00am EST / 13:00 CET The Uniform Rules for Digital Trade Transactions, that came into force on 1 October 2021, have been designed to support an overarching framework outlining obligations, rules, and standards for the digitalisation of trade transactions.

The Rules are radically different from any other rules previously published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). Not only is this the first set of Rules intended to govern transactions in an entirely digitalised environment, but also to recognise the role of the corporate as well as the the growing number of non-bank service providers who are increasingly active in this space.   

The webinar registration is free of charge. The number of participants will be limited, and registrations will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The webinar will cover the below topics relating to URDTT:

Why is there a need for the URDTT?
