Arabic term or phrase: Comm. No., SC resolution 1281 (1999)
This is a two-page international call for bids from Irak. It concerns ambulances and related medical equipment. Unfortunately the English version is not too good, but I hope someone who knows both Arabic and English can help me.

These are the difficult not-quite-clear parts of it:

10. Marking on each oter pack should be well printed showing Mo.H. mark, order, the L/C No., name of beneficiary, Comm. No. and No. offices inside.

Comm. No.?
No. offices?

16. The prices of each measurement unit is the price dependable in the requirements.

??

22. Payment from XX account in accordance with SC resolution 1281 (1999).

SC resolution 1281?

Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.

English translation:Commercial (Registration) Nr.; UN Security Council Resolution
Explanation:
The term "Comm. No." most probably means "Commercial Nr." (or similar system of registration of a sales transaction)

The term "SC resolution" refers to United Nations Security Council Resolution Nr. 1281, which relates to the UN authorization for the Iraqi "oil-for-food sales" program.

In most English-language media, "SC" appears more usually as the larger acronym of "UNSCR NNNN."

If you would kindly fax the English and Arabic pages to me at +01.714.703.2730 (ATTN: MUTARJM), I can compare them and check against some references on commerce, logistics, and trade that I gathered or created when I did some translating and interpreting for the U.N. Organization in the early 1990s.

Glad to help other colleagues in the profession whenever I can. Ahalan wa sahalan...

Khair, in sha' Allah.

Explanation:
I am from Egypt, not Iraq, so I will try to give you my best GUESSES:

1- "Marking on each oter pack should be well printed showing Mo.H. mark, order, the L/C No., name of beneficiary, Comm. No. and No. offices inside." = Clearly write on the outside of each pack: "Mo H. mark, order, the L/C [number], name of beneficiary," company number (as officially registered), and number of offices/ branches of this company.

2- "The prices of each measurement unit is the price dependable in the requirements" = The price of each unit is stated in the requirements part of the document OR depends on the (amount of) requirements.

3- "Payment from XX account in accordance with SC resolution 1281 (1999)." SC could be some kind of regulatory body that issues 'resolutions'/laws. this "resolution" is one made in the year 1999, and its serial number is 1281.

I'm sure only of my answer in 1. The other two answers are only guesses. I hope this would help you a bit, or give a starting point for others to give better clarifications.

Explanation:
10. I belive it's the Commercial Registration No. and Number of Local branches of the Iraqi importer/ beneficiaary (AL raqam el tijari and Adad eL makatib el dakhiliah).
16. Really awkward. Could it be that the price of each insurment (instrumentaion unit) is based on it specifications/ratings?!
22. This is for sure the security council resolution no. 1281 (Qarar Majlis El Amn 1281)
