Hi Pal,

Many guarantees are issued outside URDG, some responding under local laws, not known by the foreign parties.
Under URDG parties are aware of the rules regulating this issue and so they know risks etc.
Art 1b URDG 758 clearly explain that if a demand guarantee is subject to the URDG, the counter guarantee is subject to the URDG too, if the counter gurantee is subject to the URDG, a demand guarantee does not become subject to URDG automatically.
A Bank issuing a dem and guarantee on behalf of counter-uarantor will evaliate the risk incurred.
Other comments appreciated
