Financing for foreign companies in critical industry-country combinations involving raw materials extraction, import/export, or primary processing has to complete a careful process aimed at weighing the risks. This process does not extend to financing backed by the German government or another government export credit agency in an OECD member state since it will have already passed an environmental/social review. The review process also does not apply to documentary bulk operations (e.g., letters of credit, guarantees and surety bonds) in which the Bank acts merely as an intermediary between the importer and exporter."
