Import Export Code (IEC)

Import Export Code (IEC) is a ten digit number, comprising alphabets and numbers. IEC is a mandatory prerequisite to starting a business of Import or Export in India. The IEC code is a pan based registration, hence against one pan number the director general of foreign trade can issue only one IE Code. The IEC is a unique number through which a person is identified at all offices of Customs and DGFT across India. In general all the Imports and Exports can be done without any other authorisation, license or permission, However in the national interest or to regulate the trade or any specific commodity, the central government may restrict or prohibit the import or export of certain goods. In case you wish to import any item which is restricted, an application for license or permission to import can be made to the DGFT explaining the specific reasons for the export or import.
