Make an enquiry

A one-stop-shop solution for financial institutions and other organisations navigating complex regulatory requirements.

The Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) imposes an obligation on banks to ensure that their credit protection arrangements are legally effective and valid in all relevant jurisdictions and to provide the competent authority (upon its request) with the most recent version of the independent, written and reasoned legal opinion that it used to establish the above.

The Global ECA Cover CRR 194 Opinion Service provides access to generic legal opinions for the cover products (CRM) of various export credit agencies (ECAs). As of January 2021 most of Europe, Korea, Japan, the US and certain multilaterals are included. We are now covering ECA's in more than 25 jurisdictions, as well as 6 of the largest multi-lateral development banks and 75 different cover products.
