EKF’s risk assessment when exporting to Iran


EKF's cover policy towards Iran

Above-average payment risk EKF covers only the risks associated with business transactions in the country if the buyers meet a number of stringent requirements that limit EKF's risk liability. The payment risk may however be so high for certain types of business transactions that EKF does not wish to engage in them.
