Bank guarantees & Standby documentary credits

Guarantee/Standby DC is an irrevocable undertaking in writing, issued by the Bank on behalf of the applicant in favor of the beneficiary, to pay on the presentation of a complying demand in accordance with the terms of the guarantee/standby DC. Guarantees and Standby DCs are used by beneficiaries to mitigate the non-performance or non-payment risk of the applicant.
