L/C Monitor (LCM) is an independent voice of the trade services industry. LCM was first published in 1999 as a legal financial journal covering practical aspects of payment instruments in international trade. In June 2000 LCM acquired ‘LC Update’ from Thompson Publishing Group. In 2008 LCM launched ‘Trade Services Update’ (TSU) the only electronic newsletter devoted to the topic of trade services. In 2009 Editorial boards of LCM and TSU were combined; the journal became fully electronic and free to all registered parties, and a searchable data base of all past and future content was created and made available to paid subscribers.
Sun Tzu said, "For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill."
Much skill is required in handling letters of credit and other payment instruments used in international trade. The existing Incoterms, UCP, URC, URDG, ISP, ISBP, publications from ICC provide rules and guidelines but still there are many unanswered questions. When rules are updated new problems arise and clarification and education is required. Now more than ever timely information is needed to succeed and prevent problems before they occur.
