This subrule applies only to Standby LCs and not to other types of undertaking that are subject to the ISP98. Subrule (c) provides that unless otherwise stated in the text of the standby LC, the ‘Issuer’ means either the actual issuer or the confirmer. The rule here treated the confirmer as a separate issuer and its confirmation a separate standby issued for the account of the issuer. This is to avoid repetition of the word ‘and confirmer’ every time the word issuer was used, and also to emphasize the identical responsibilities of both the issuer and confirmer.

Appear on their face is a term that confines the banks’ duty to only checking the physical documents presented, and it does so in a certain way peculiar to bankers; banks just do not go beyond that. In Subrule (c), it is clearly reiterated that the issuer is always bound (except in the case of a clear and undoubted fraud) to honour a complying presentation made under a standby LC whether or not the applicant authorized its issuance, the issuer received a fee, or the beneficiary received or relied on the standby or amendment.

Of claims by the applicant that the beneficiary’s presentation is fraudulent. d. Of claims related to the underlying agreement (contract from which the LC was originated) or reimbursement agreement even if such contract and agreement were referred to in the text of the standby LC. e. Any other reason whatsoever. A standby LC once issued is irrevocable, independent, documentary and binding undertaking and payment under it can not be stopped except by a court injunction in a case of clear and undoubted fraud.
