TARGET AUDIENCE

The ICC Academy Export/Import Certificate (EIC) provides knowledge to a broad audience of international trade professionals—such as export and import managers, trade finance bankers, forwarders and carriers, customs brokers, private and government inspectors and auditors, insurance providers, trade lawyers and trade promotion executives.

The EIC is all you need in order to succeed in international markets. This easy-to-understand introduction to international trade is at the same time a detailed handbook for the experienced practitioner

Course Objectives

International merchandise transactions are an important and central form of international business. This course begins with a review of the practices and procedures in export sales and the international trade process: from the preparation of a comprehensive sale agreement to the subsidiary agreements required with bankers, transporters and insurers.

This will be followed by an outline of the sequence of events in an international trade transaction, a quick look at the use of each of these key documents, and how the ICC Incoterm Rules play a necessary role in allocating costs and risk involved in trade. We conclude this course with a statistical summary of world trade, reviewing such data as the world’s largest economies, fastest-growing economies, most valuable brands, and largest shipping companies and corporations.
