What is a clean bill of lading?

A bill of lading which bears no remark altering the printed statement “Shipped in apparent good order and condition…. “.Β 

The words “CLEAN ON BOARD” are often also endorsed on the Bill. Letters of credit – and banks – generally demand production of only clean bills of lading, which may cause problems when goods are loaded which require clausing of the bill.
