CAN I SEE DOCUMENTS TO PROVE THE SUPPLIER’S ABILITY TO SUPPLY?

Q CAN I SEE DOCUMENTS TO PROVE THE SUPPLIER’S ABILITY TO SUPPLY?

A

Yes, after the LC opens. Most suppliers are willing to share some documents after the LC opens. This is due to a few reasons. Documents such as past BL’s, Sanitary Certificate etc. that have in the past been shared with buyers have ended up being used by scammers for fraudulent use. It is also illegal in many countries to share this information.
