New Incoterms 2010 come into effect 1 January 2011

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) announced that Incoterms® 2010 launched in September 2010, came into effect on 1 January, 2011.

To keep up with the rapid expansion of world trade and globalization, the Incoterms rules are revised about once a decade. Since the last revision in 2000, much has changed in global trade and the current revision will take into account issues such as developments in cargo security and the need to replace paper documents with electronic ones.







“Get familiar with the New Incoterms® 2010. You may need to renegotiate any of your contracts that may be affected by the changes”.

Lance Scoular, The Savvy Navigator
Founding Partner and CEO,
Key Directions.





The 2010 edition includes 11 terms instead of the 13 in the previous edition.
The following terms from Incoterms 2000 have been deleted from the list:

DAF, DES, DEQ and DDU.

Two new terms have been added to the list:
DAT and DAP.

DAT replaces Incoterms 2000 rule DEQ.

DAP replaces Incoterms 2000 rules DAF, DES and DDU.

• Advice for the use of electronic procedures;
