However we do not encourage companies seeking a contract without an ICPO (With BCL or banking details).
We can ensure that the procedure is followed in every stage.
The procedures here are a guideline and do not reflect all suppliers.
a)Â Direct contact established between Ashmore Resources and Principal Buyer or Mandate.
b)Â Buyer submits a Corporate Overview, to include Bios on the Principal(s), to Ashmore Resources for initial Sellerâ€™s Compliance Review.Â Buyer describes the product they are looking for, method of payment, terms they wish to obtain, and confirming agreement with the Procedures.Â Ashmore provides Sellerâ€™s response to the credentials presented â€“ typically within 24 â€“ 48 hours.
c)Â Following initial Compliance, the Buyer Signatory receives Sellerâ€™s Confidential Bona Fides, accompanied by a Template Request for Quote (RFQ) via Ashmore.Â The buyer returns the RFQ, along with the Buyer bona fides (as detailed in the RFQ), confirming the Buyer is a Signatory Principal.Â This will allow Seller to return a Draft Contract to the Signatory Buyer.
Banking Details (LC instrument utilized in the transaction, product payment method, etc.) are confirmed during direct discussions between the Buyer Signatory and Seller Principals in the Contract phase of the Transaction.
