Discrepancy or not: As Agent or As Agent for the carrier?

B/L signiture box:

ABC CO.,LTD As Carrier
(Signiture)
DEF CO., LTD As Agent

But Bank said that the party who signed is not clear.
So they want to add "for the carrier", not just "As Agent".

Is the phrase "As Agent" not enough in this situation?

Hi

As per article 20 of UCP "Any signature by an agent must indicate whether the agent has signed for or on behalf of the carrier or for or on behalf of the master."
The BL should indicat
ABC CO.,LTD As Carrier
(Signiture)
DEF CO., LTD As Agent of/for the Carrier
