Import Export Code (IEC)

Importer Exporter Code (IEC) is a 10-character unique alpha-numeric number allotted to a person / entity. It is mandatory for undertaking any export/import activities including services exports. The entity will not be eligible for any benefits without valid IEC. If the entity has violated any of the Foreign Trade Laws, their IEC will be put into Denied Entity List (DEL), restricting the entity from getting any further benefits.

An IEC has permanent validity. One PAN can have only one IEC associated with it. With the dawn of GST, IEC will be same as PAN i.e., when you apply for IEC from DGFT, your IEC will be issued with the same code as your PAN.

  1. IEC Number
  2. Company Name
