Usage of Trade Law and Legal Definition

Pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code, "usage of trade" is any practice or method of dealing having such regularity of observance in a place, vocation, or trade. It must justify an expectation that it will be observed with respect to the transaction in question. However, the existence and scope of such a usage must be proved as facts. The interpretation of the record is a question of law, if it is established that such a usage is embodied in a trade code or similar record.
