Incoterms® 2020

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce—as ICC Canada, Canada’s national committee for the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) — is preparing for the launch of Incoterms® 2020. This new edition of the Incoterms® rules will become available in September 2019 and will take effect as of January 1, 2020. The new rules will reflect the changing economic landscape since the release of Incoterms® 2010 and will provide specific guidance to individuals participating in the import and export of goods.

What Are Incoterms® Rules?

ICC’s Incoterms® rules are the world’s essential terms of trade for the trade of goods. Whether you are filing a purchase order, packaging and labelling a shipment for freight transport or preparing a certificate of origin at a port, the Incoterms® rules are there to guide you on the costs, risks and obligations for your business.

For more information about Incoterms®, please visit the ICC’s Incoterms® Rules page.

Training Information

The Incoterms® 2020 course offered by the Canadian Chamber and FITT will be the only in-class training in Canada that is done by trainers who are officially recognized by the International Chamber of Commerce.
