Here you will find the current country classification applicable under the export credit guarantee scheme of the Federal Republic of Germany in alphabetical order. Explanatory notes on the country risk classification system as well as the historical classifications are made available by the OECD.

If one of the multilateral/regional financing institutions named in the table below is included as borrower or guarantor, the premium will be calculated on the basis of a market test.

*) The countries marked *) are high-income countries of the OECD and the euroarea, which are not classified by the OECD with regard to their risk. A premium category, that applies to all OECD countries, does not exist. The premium is calculated on the basis of a market test.
 

 

**) In order to avoid competitive distortions within the EU common market, a market test is also carried out for countries marked **). As a result, the premium may be higher than that of the country risk category stated.
