Ex Ante Guidance for Tied AidThe Participants to the Arrangement on Officially Supported Export Credits agreed on the revised text of the 2003 Ex Ante Guidance for Tied Aid at their 94th Meeting held in April 2005. This updated Ex Ante Guidance reflects the recent body of experience derived from the individual projects evaluated during 1995 to 2004 under the tied aid rules (the so-called "Helsinki Disciplines") of the Arrangement, implemented since 1992.
The purpose of the Ex Ante Guidance is to help project planners anticipate, at an early stage, whether (or not) a project is likely to pass the two Helsinki Package key tests on commercial viability as caught within the Arrangement on Export Credits. The Ex Ante Guidance seeks to identify key technical and economic characteristics of past-evaluated projects that have impacted significantly on the Participants' decisions as to whether a project was considered eligible or ineligible for tied aid financing under the Helsinki Package.
