See what the experts are saying:
"Any bank that issues independent undertakings, whether they call them 'standby letters of credit' or 'demand guarantees,' needs to understand where the UCP, the ISP, and the URDG are the same and where they differ. Standby & Demand Guarantee Practice: Understanding UCP600, ISP98, & URDG 758 provides a roadmap for managing the processes of issuing such undertakings and handling drawings by explaining how and where the processes can be the standardized, regardless of the rules chosen and what they are called, and where care must be taken to address the differences. I expect it will go far to eliminate the misunderstandings that currently exist that standby letters of credit and demand guarantees are somehow distinct instruments and to encourage people to choose the rules appropriate to the situational need."
