A back-to-back Letter of Credit is issued using an existing export L/C opened in customer‟s favour with consistent terms and conditions as security and the source of repayment. Similar to Transferable Letters of Credit the buyer will not normally know the ultimate supplier and the Standard Chartered Bank’s customer can therefore supply the buyer without divulging data relating to third parties.
