Dear Member,

 

O/o DGFT has issued Trade Notice No. 23/2020-2021 dated 31st July, 2020 regarding issuance of Preferential Certificate of Origin (CoO) for India’s exports to Thailand under ASEAN-India FTA

 

In this connection, you may refer to Trade Notice No.12/2020-2021 dated 22nd May, 2020 and subsequent Trade Notice No.15/2020-2021 dated 21st June, 2020 on the same subject.

 

Please make a note of the following details- 

  • With effect from 1st August, 2020, the CoO applications for exports from India to Thailand under ASEAN-India FTA should be submitted through the e-COO Platform to the designated issuing agencies i.e. EIA, MPEDA and Textile Committee. 

  • No physical/manual application for a CoO would need to be submitted from 1st August, 2020. 

  • However, manual applications submitted prior to the given date may be processed and CoOs issued by the designated agencies. 

  • In line with the CoOs issued for other ASEAN Countries, the e-CoO platform will generate one additional copy i.e. electronic copy along with the set of 4 copies. 

  • The electronic copy shall bear the image signature of the officer and stamp of the issuing agency. 

  • The exporter may however get the set of printed certificates (in quadruplicate) duly ink-signed by the officer along with the stamp from the designated issuing office, by post or in person, for submission to the Thai authorities.

Members may kindly make a note of the above and do the needful accordingly.

Thanking you,

 

Yours faithfully,
