To: Members of the Council

Sub: Launch of facility to check status of Importer Exporter Code (IEC) application made to DGFT

Dear Member,

The Council is pleased to inform you that the O/o DGFT has issued Trade Notice No. 02/ 2018- 19 dated 11th April, 2018 informing about the creation of a new facility for members of Trade to check status of Importer Exporter Code (IEC) application made to DGFT.

O/o DGFT has noticed that in some cases, even after issuance of IEC by DGFT, the IEC data though transmitted by DGFT to ICEGATE (Customs) is not accepted by ICEGATE (Customs) due to some transmission errors. As a result, the IEC holder is unable to export/ import using this IEC.

Members may please note the following;

  • A facility has been created to check the current status of IEC application and status of IEC transmission to ICEGATE. The status query is based on PAN used in IEC application made to DGFT. The facility to check status of Import Export Code(IEC) application can be accessed from DGFT website using Online Application → IEC → Know your IEC Status or directly from http://164.100.128.145:8100/IecStatusReport/.
  • PAN Number and first three letters of Firm Name can be entered to check the status. Based on the status displayed, action to be taken as mentioned below.
