The newest edition of the International Commercial Terms (Incoterms), “INCOTERMS® 2020” is expected to be released by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) on the 13th of September 2019. INCOTERMS® 2020 will enter into force on the 1st of January 2020 to offer international trade operators a major tool to accompany their exchanges for the coming 10 years. The last updated edition of the Incoterms was in 2010 and it brought significant changes to earlier Incoterms.


The INCOTERMS® 2020 are expected to remain at the number of 11; 10 of these would keep the same designations while one, the “DAT” (Delivered at Terminal), would change its designation to become DPU (Delivered at Place Unloaded). This change would allow sellers and buyers to use this term to any place agreed by them avoiding the limitation to terminals only.


Accordingly, the 11 Incoterms are expected to be the following always split into 2 groups:


Rules associated with all modes of transport («polivalent» rules):

EXW   EX Works

FCA    Free CArrier

CPT    Carriage Paid To

CIP     Carriage and Insurance Paid

DAP   Delivered At Place

DPU   Delivered at Place Unloaded

DDP   Delivery Duty Paid


Rules which apply to maritime transport and inland waterway transport («maritime» rules):

FAS      Free Alongside Ship

FOB      Free On Board

CFR      Cost and FReight

CIF       Cost Insurance and Freight


The main expected changes are to occur to:


* the levels of insurance required by default in case of the CIP or CIF Incoterms;

* as for FCA, an On-board bill of lading concept is expected to be introduced.

* Finally, for the EXW and DDP, they are still deemed to be the least practical to international trade as all obligations and responsibilities would be totally borne by one side or the other; these two Incoterms are expected nonetheless to be kept within the INCOTERMS® 2020.


Incoterms govern the majority of global international exchanges of goods, they thus play a vital role in the regulation of certain aspects of the relationship buyer and seller in international trade transactions; hence, it is key for international trade operators to understand the extent of the changes that occurred and assess their impact to their transactions before the entry into force of the INCOTERMS® 2020 edition.
