DSCs can only be issued by over a couple of authorized Certification Agencies. The Dollar Business makes this task hassle-free for you through its direct association with a relevant certifying authority.


Get an IEC

Importer-Exporter Code (IEC) is a unique 10-digit code issued by the Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce, Government of India, to Indian companies who are interested to engage in the business of exports-imports. Without IEC, an Indian entity cannot export or import.
