An Import Export Code (IEC) is a 10-digit unique identification number issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. It is mandatory for any person or entity engaged in import or export activities in India, except for certain categories exempted from obtaining IEC.

An Import Export Code serves as a primary identification number for exporters and importers in India, facilitating customs clearance, international trade transactions, and compliance with foreign trade regulations. It is valid for the lifetime of the entity and does not require renewal.

Obtaining an IEC enables businesses to engage in international trade activities, including importing goods into India and exporting goods from India, by providing a unique identification number recognized by customs authorities and financial institutions. It also allows businesses to avail of various benefits and incentives offered under foreign trade policy schemes.

While there are no specific compliance requirements associated with IEC, businesses are required to comply with relevant foreign trade policies, customs regulations, and reporting requirements applicable to their import and export activities. Additionally, any changes in business details or status must be updated with the DGFT to maintain the accuracy of the IEC record.
