Concordo con la tua traduzione:

What is a clean Bill of Lading?
A clean Bill of Lading states that the consignment is in apparent good order and condition when shipped on board, and the carrier accepts the liability of delivering the goods in this same condition to the consignee.

Banks will only accept a clean Bill of Lading. (see reference section: letter of indemnity)

If the carrier cannot accept this responsibility for some reason, he will add a clause to the B/L, explaining why not. Then the B/L is a claused or "dirty" B/L, and will not be accepted by a bank. In this case, the carrier does his job, and must be paid, but the exporter will have delivered to him in correct condition.

Examples of such clauses, which may be typed or hand-written are:

inadequate packing
two cases short shipped
one drum leaking
