This article was not included in previous versions of the eUCP.
The structure of this article is aligned in order to follow the construction of UCP 600 article 5 which reads ‘Banks deal with documents and not with goods, services or performance to which the documents may relate.'
UCP 600 article 5 does not address electronic records. The addition of "electronic records" in the eUCP is a key difference. Whilst it is acknowledged that the definition of "documents" includes "electronic records", it is considered that this article provides clarity and transparency.
