The 1995 revision of Article 5 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) was heavily influenced by international practice as reflected in the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP). The Reporter for Revised UCC Article 5, Professor James J. White," acknowledges the heavy influence of international practice, views it as a mixed blessing, and attributes it to the focused efforts of the letter of credit bankers' trade association, the United States Council on Inter- national Banking, Inc. (USCIB). This article further explains and welcomes the internationalization of Revised UCC Article 5.
