In addition to the requirements in PIB Rule 4.13.9, where an Authorised FirmG has an ExposureG that is protected by a guarantee or that is counter-guaranteed by a central government or Central BankG , a regional government or local authority or a PSE claims on which are treated as claims on the central government in whose jurisdiction they are established, a MDB or an international organisation to which a 0% risk weight is assigned under PIB section 4.12, an Authorised FirmG may treat the ExposureG as being protected by a direct guarantee from the central government or Central BankG in question, provided the following requirements are complied with:

(a) the counter-guarantee covers all Credit RiskG elements of the ExposureG ;
(b) both the original guarantee and the counter-guarantee comply with all the requirements for guarantees set out in this section, except that the counter-guarantee need not be direct and explicit with respect to the original ExposureG ; and
(c) the Authorised FirmG is able to satisfy the DFSAG that the cover is robust and that nothing in the historical evidence suggests that the coverage of the counter-guarantee is less than effectively equivalent to that of a direct guarantee by the entity in question.
