THE DOCUMENTS AS SECURITY I: LOST, DAMAGED OR MISDESCRIBED GOODS

ROLE AND FUNCTION OF TRANSPORT DOCUMENTS

5.1 This book covers documentary credits, but its title is “Bills of Lading and Bankers’ Documentary Credits”, not simply “Bankers’ Documentary Credits”.

Alternative forms of documentation do not necessarily perform all the same functions, and where they do not, it is important to appreciate what is being lost.
