02Supplementary requirements for documents

The Customs and Excise Department of India has issued Notice No. 33/2018, which states that from 1 April 2018, importers must ensure that the following basic details are informed to their exporters abroad in order to incorporate them into the booking of such goods:


(1) Import and Export Codes of importers (IEC)


(2) Consumption Tax Importer ID Number (GSTIN)


(3) Importer's official E-mail ID (for shipping line and customs communication)


The notice is issued in the case of consignment of hazardous wastes, other wastes or restricted articles imported under the name of certain importers which have not been removed.  The importer's basic information must therefore be recorded on the bill of lading so that these details can be used to determine DPD stacking and for various other purposes.
