Target group

German export firms


Insurable risks

Contract bond cover offers protection against the loss of the guarantee amount in cases of

  • fair calling of the bond by the buyer because the exporter has failed to fulfil his obligations due to political events abroad;
  • fair calling of the bond by the buyer because contract performance has become impossible due to embargo measures taken by the Federal Republic of Germany;
  • unfair calling of the bond due to political events abroad;
  • unfair calling of the bond due to other circumstances which make the claim to reimbursement of the guaranteed sum unenforceable for political or commercial reasons


Examples of use

  • Performance bonds
  • Maintenance bonds

A Contract Bond Guarantee can be issued only in combination with a Manufacturing Risk Guarantee or a Supplier Credit Guarantee.
