The prerequisites of setting up trade are as follows:
The mandatory documents required for export and import are:
Registering Authorities are bodies that are notified by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) to register exporters/importers as their members. These registering authorities issue the Registration-Cum-Membership Certificate (RCMC) to register them as members.
To get the RCMC, you have to fill an application form-ANF 2C. This is required to register your business and become a member of the EPC (Export Promotion Council) or the FIEO (Federation of Indian Export Organisations). Then, the exporter should declare the main line of his business and get the Registration-Cum-Membership Certificate (RCMC) from the Council authorised to issue the certificate for products that the business mainly deals in. If you are an exporter, exporting multiple products, you cannot become an EPC member. In such cases, the RCMC should be obtained from the FIEO. The RCMC is valid for 5 financial years
The Importer Exporter Code is a 10-digit, unique alphanumerical code. This code is issued basis the PAN of the business. The IEC is mandatory to carry on import and export business in India, unless there are specific exemptions to the rule.
IEC is issued in an electronic format, called the e-IEC, by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT). The DGFT falls under the purview of the Government of India’s Ministry of Commerce.
Once the IEC is allotted to an applicant, it is valid permanently. However, the applicant has to update the IEC every year, to keep it active. Failing to do so would deactivate the IEC, and the import-export business would not be allowed to continue. Moreover, if you update the IEC between the April-June quarter, the updating becomes free of cost, as no fee is charged for the same.
