August 29, 2019 – The Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) are proud to announce their partnership to deliver Incoterms® 2020 in-person training to Canadian businesses in advance of the new standards coming into effect January 2020.
Revised by the International Chamber of Commerce every 10 years, the latest version of Incoterms® will be released in early September before going live in 2020. Incoterms® are an essential part of the language used by buyers and sellers in international trade. These trade terms have been incorporated in contracts for the sale of goods worldwide and define the costs, risks and obligations in international trade transactions to importers, exporters, transporters, customs brokers, lawyers and students of international trade. An improper use of Incoterms® can be costly to businesses.
To help Canadian businesses get up to speed on the Incoterms® 2020 changes and what they mean for their involvement in international trade, the Canadian Chamber and FITT are working with local chambers of commerce, World Trade Centres, economic development agencies and other associations to deliver face-to-face training across Canada.
The Incoterms® 2020 course offered by the Canadian Chamber and FITT will be the only in-class training in Canada that is officially recognized by the International Chamber of Commerce.
Stay tuned for further information from FITT in September 2019 on where you’ll be able to access this training.
