Country Classification List

Here you can find the current country classification of the Official Export Credit Guarantee Scheme of the Federal Republic of Germany in alphabetical order. 

*) The countries marked *) are high-income countries of the OECD and the Eurozone, which have not been classified by the OECD with regard to their risk. A premium category, which applies in 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 **). Thus the premium may be higher than that of the country risk category stated.
