Requesting exposure scenarios only for a specific department
Depending on your needs and how we have agreed with you to set up your system, you can decide to have a specific department for only the products that you need us to request the exposure scenario documents (specific amount of products). This can be relevant if you know that you don't need to have exposure scenarios for all of your products, but only a few of them, where you need an active check for update from us. You can still handle exposure scenarios on other departments and in the risk assessment, but we will not actively check for updates. Note that this can only be done by Customer Service, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
