BANKS ARE ONLY PERMITTED TO ACT UPON THE INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN IN SUCH COLLECTION INSTRUCTION AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH URC 522. In view of the above, the collecting/presenting bank should act as follows: 1) In the case of absence of instructions: – check to ensure that the covering schedule has not been misplaced somewhere within the bank;– advising the remitting bank immediately of the status of the documents received and asking them to give the collection instructions. 2) In the case of inappropriate instructions, i.e., draft at future date is presented with instructions as D/P: – Release the documents against D/P.
