Import Export Code

Import Export Code (IEC) is a registration required for any business involved in importing or exporting goods and services from India. An IEC is issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT). It is a 10-digit code that has a lifetime validity and does not require any renewal.

An Import Export Code gives international options and exposure to a domestic business in India. Having an IEC can also make a business eligible for numerous export scheme benefits offered by the DGFT and Customs and Export Promotion Council. An individual can also obtain an IEC as there is no legal requirement of having a separate business to get IEC registration in India.
