export and/or import embargo indemnity

Export and/or import embargo indemnity is coverage of loss that occurs when import restrictions imposed by the government of the buyer's country or an export embargo in the seller's country frustrates an overseas contract.

Additional Information

Similarly, should a contract include goods manufactured in a third country, substantial additional costs might be incurred if export restrictions were imposed in the subcontractor's country; or, in circumstances where subcontracted goods were being imported into the main contractor's country, an import embargo on such goods might be imposed. It is possible to cover losses incurred when contracts are frustrated in this way by means of an export/import embargo indemnity.
