Import Export Code (IEC) is a mandatory prerequisite for all entities involved in the import of export of goods and services. It is a pan-based registration; hence, against one pan number the director general of foreign trade can issue only one IE Code.
To apply for an IE Code, the entity must have a valid PAN, GSTIN and a bank current account. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce and Industries issues an IE Code to the applicant after the application is submitted along with supporting documents.
IE Code registration is a permanent registration and is valid for a lifetime. Therefore, there is no requirement for updating, filing and renewal of IE Code registration. It is a one-time registration and requires no additional compliance.

After submission of the online application along with the fees and requisite documents, IEC will be auto-generated and the certificate can be printed for records. IEC is a ten-digit code, comprising alphabets and numbers.
Even though the IE Code is auto-generated, the Regional Authority would conduct post-verification of the online IEC as per the guidelines and in case there is any wrong or incomplete information furnished, the applicant would be liable for penal or criminal action and in such case, IEC would be either suspended or cancelled.
A Registration Cum Membership Certificate (RCMC) is a certificate issued by the Federation of Indian Export Organizations (FIEO) and one of the various Export Promotion Councils (EPC) or Commodity Boards – primarily agencies and organizations that work towards the promotion and development of export businesses and are authorized to do so by the Government of India. It is a membership certificate issued for five years and signifies that the holder of the certificate is registered with FIEO or Commodity Board. The applicant of the RCMC has to declare their primary line of business while applying for it, and possession of an RCMC entails an exporter to all the benefits and advantages of the respective parent organization.
