blank back

(documentation) A form that does not have the terms and conditions printed on the reverse (back) of the form. For example, a blank back bill of lading, also called a short form bill of lading, does not have the terms and conditions of carriage printed on the reverse. Instead, they are listed in another document. Unless otherwise stipulated in a letter of credit, a blank back bill of lading is acceptable in most transactions. Note that the more common term is short form.
