What does ECGC do on default of payment of any overseas buyer?


We have discussed about the default of payment by overseas buyer and insurance coverage by ECGC. Export Credit Guarantee corporation reimburse the export proceeds, if overseas buyer not paid the amount of export proceeds to exporter, if such transaction has been insured by ECGC.


Ok, now after reimbursement to exporter, what does ECGC do? Will ECGC keep quite? No, Export Credit Guarantee Corporation, with their network of connections, finds out actual cause of default. If ECGC’s investigation report is not satisfactory, such firm will be black listed.

What happens, if a firm is black listed by ECGC?


If a buyer/importer has been black listed by ECGC, such information is circulated among all international associates of ECGC in turn, such buyer can not buy/import goods from any other suppliers/sellers/exporters on a credit basis.


ECGC circulates this default of payment with all their international contacts and take up the matter legally with higher legal levels. Also this overseas buyer will be black listed by Export Credit Guarantee Corporation and circulated with all their associates’ counterparts. Once an overseas buyer has been black listed, he can not buy goods from anywhere in the country, as ECGC does not approve their credit worthiness to exporters and bankers.
