New Bill of Lading Requirements for Exports to India 2018-03-27

As of April 1, exporters to India are required to include the following information in their bills of lading:
  • Import and export code (IEC) of importer
  • GST identification number (GSTIN) of importer
  • Email address of importer
These requirements have been put in place after a number of incidents in which consignments of hazardous waste, other waste and restricted items were shipped to India in the name of importers that do not exist. It is suspected that these consignments were exported for the purpose of dumping of hazardous waste from the exporting country.
