She lives in a region where there are a lot of coconut plantations .

The application may be made online on http colon , double slash triple W dot D G F T dot G O V dot I N for a fees of ₹500 here .

N O should keep in mind a few things .

First , only one I E C is issued against one pan , applying for more than one I E C is a violation of the government rules .

Also , Nico should remember that an I E C is for a lifetime and no renewal is required for an I E C step three .

Next N U would have to register with an Export Promotion Council E PC or a commodity board .

The list of export promotion councils is found in the appendices to the foreign trade policy which is available on the D G F T website under Acts and rules .

Since Nikko wants to export coconut products , she would have to register with coconut Development Board which is the E PC for all coconut products , other than those made from coconut husk and fiber for exporting husk and fiber products .

She would also have to register with the core board for some products .

One might have to register with more than one Export Promotion Council step four Next , Nico needs to identify the inspection certificates required for exporting her coconut products .

The export quality control and Inspection Act 1963 provide for the sound development of the export trade of India through quality control and inspection .

The export inspection council of India would help in identifying the inspection certificates required for the given product .

Now , Nico has the groundwork prepared for starting her export business .

However , this does not end here in international trade .

There are many other technical specifications related to payment methods , shipping and documentation , et cetera .
