Import Export Code Registration

Import Export code registration is required for businesses importing or exporting goods and services from India.

Any business that undertakes import and export of services and goods from the country must obtain an Import Export Code (IEC) from the Government. DGFT (Director General of Foreign Trade) under the auspices of the Ministry of Commerce and Industries (MCI) issues IEC to business entities. The key advantage of registering for an IEC is that it is valid for a lifetime and no renewal is necessary for the Code. Not just business entities, even individuals can apply for IEC. The rationale behind IEC is to regulate certain restricted sectors from the international trade point of view like nuclear weapons, automatic guns.

What kind of form needs to be filled for Import Export Code application?

Form ANF 2A (Aayaat Niryaat Form 2A) must be filled to sent to the Regional Director of DGFT.

Who needs to apply for IEC Code?

Any business or individual who undertakes import and export of services and goods from the country must obtain an Importer Exporter Code (IEC) from the Government.

Why is IEC Code needed?

Exporters need to mention IEC code while exporting goods and services out of India and Importers need to mention IEC code while clearing their imported goods from Customs. Also, RBI now asks for IEC code in bank remittances as well from an individual or entity engaged in import and export of goods and services.

Are there any mandatory compliance required to be followed under IEC?

No. Since IEC is just a license, no mandatory compliances are required to be followed.

Is there any penalty for not having an Import Export Code?

No. There is no penalty for not having an Import Export Code as it is not mandatory under law. However, in the absence of the IEC Code, no export or import of goods and services would be permissible.
