Transfering bank should be nominated bank or in a credit available with any bank, a bank should be specifically authorized to transfer.

In your L/c commerzbank is authorized to transfer. If you want ABC bank to transfer, amendment required.

Hi Navi, what happens in this kind of a situation if the bank wasn't specifically authorized to transfer? Can the transfer still occur?

Hi friends,

Dear momo,
I have not come accross such an L/c available with 2 different banks . In my opinion, if you correctly express it in the Lc, it may be possible. Since LC can be issued available with "any bank by..." that means more than one bank may be nominated bank. However, LC must clearly contain terms to protect nominated banks/issuing bank/applicant to avoid honour of double/triple presentations that may be made by beneficiary for the same shipment.

Dear Secman,
If the l/c does not specifically authorize a bank to transfer the LC, then, that bank should not act as transfering bank and must seek an amendment from issuing bank.
