Information on institutions and organisations



As Export Credit Agency (ECA), CESCE has been managing export credit insurance on behalf of the State since 1970.

Pursuant to Law 8/2014 of 22 April on State coverage of Spanish internationalisation risks, CESCE is in charge of covering the risks associated to the internationalisation of the Spanish economy, even though it is the State that ultimately meets the insurance liabilities.

Risks are covered under several insurance modalities, depending on the different characteristics of the transactions to insure. This generates premiums and indemnities payable to the insured in case of loss.

As managing agent, CESCE collects premiums, pays indemnities, recovers defaulted amounts and manages debt accumulating with different countries, on behalf of the State.

The State controls and supervises the instrument through the State Risk Committee. The Committee is empowered to decide in matters of risk coverage on behalf of the State. Furthermore, the operations are audited by different bodies of the Administration, e.g. the Court of Auditors.

3. Should the information requested affect the rights or interests of duly identified third parties, these are granted a period of 15 days to submit the allegations they consider appropriate. The applicant must be informed of the circumstance, as well as of the suspension of the period established for taking a decision until such allegations are received or until the period for submission has elapsed.
