swift mt103/23

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I notice that seller's in the financial and oil markets are offering MT103/23 as optional payment terms in their contracts in addition to the traditional and safe and secure DLC. The broker market has endorsed the MT103/23 as a "conditional payment" and some banking "experts" self styled, are saying there is no such thing, that MT103 is a transfer of funds period. ICC have nothing to say about it as the DLC is so well established in their procedures.
Can anyone with real knowledge and the ability to quote authorities like to comment ?
I don't want to hear from any ignoramuses or joker brokers.

a standard MT103 message is simply a TT payment instruction, which is obviously not a guarantee, but simply an unconditional payment.

A so called "MT103/23" is (as far as I know) a format which would not be recognised by banks. The intention is for the buyer to arrange for the issuance of a SWIFT MT103 message with field 23 claused as "CONDITIONAL" so that the payment is not released/actioned by the recipient bank until certain conditions have been fulfilled, such as say, presentation of documents, evidencing shipment of goods.

It must be understood that such messages are not governed by any ICC provisions, and the manual intervention required under the "CONDITIONAL" flag would affect the "straight through processing" (STP) function of the MT103 message. It is unlikely that the SWIFT/Payment department of a bank would wish to involve itself in an area for which it is not qualified, in determining the integrity of the underlying documents, and thereby lift the condition to pay the seller. Such messages have been the subject of scams whereby an unscrupulous seller will circumvent the usual secure instruments such as LCs or bank guarantees, and instead rely on the relative ease of receiving payment against a less stringent examination of underlying shipping documents

What Yohan says is absolutely correct. I had actually heard that the net result is usually that upon receipt the SWIFT/Payment department of the bank literally disregards the whole instrument altogether.
