What documents are needed to make changes to the IEC ?

For an IEC change, the following documents are needed:

1. The name and address of the person or business to whom the IEC was given;

2. A valid email address and phone number of the person

How long does it take to make changes on the DGFT portal ?
About 7–10 days are needed to change the information on the DGFT portal. Once the changes are made, DGFT will issue a new IEC certificate.
How do you change the IEC if you have an LLP or a company ?
In the case of a public or private limited company, limited liability partnership (LLP), or one-person company (OPC), we must first make changes to the IEC code on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) portal, and then we can make changes on the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) portal.
What happens if a mistake is made when registering for an import-export code ?
Under the new system, regulatory authorities (RAs) are now allowed to check the new import-export code after it has been put in place. If incorrect information is provided when registering for IEC, the applicant will be held legally liable. In this case, it is likely that the import-export code will be put on hold or canceled.
What can be done to keep the IEC from being canceled or put on hold if the wrong information is given ?
If mistakes are found in the IEC, the import-export code can be put on hold or canceled. The only way to avoid a situation like this is to file for IEC modification on time.
