How does confiscation risk cover work? 

Confiscation risk cover enables German exporters to insure the typical risks arising in connection with transactions abroad where it is not yet clear whether the goods will actually or finally be sold abroad when they cross the border (e.g. delivery to consignment stock or purchase on trial basis) or where a sale is not intended in the first place (e.g. delivery to a bonded warehouse or trade fair stocks).
