HOW IT WORKS

 

  1. Exporter enters into a sale contract with importers
  2. The exporter includes an insurance contract with ICIEC and pays premium
  3. The exporter ships the goods to the buyers and declares the shipments to ICIEC
  4. In case one of the buyers fail to pay, the exporter submits a claim to ICIEC which indemnifies the exporter up to 90% of the contract value
  5. ICIEC recovers from the buyer and pays 10% share to the exporter
