about Export Inspection Council of India (EIC)

The Export Inspection Council of India (EIC) was
set up by the Government of India under Section
3 of the Export (Quality Control & Inspection)
Act, 1963 as an apex body to provide for sound
development of export trade through quality
control and pre-shipment inspection. The Act
empowers the Central Government to notify
commodities and their minimum standards for
exports, generally international standards or
standards of the importing countries and to set
up suitable machinery for inspection and quality
control. The EIC is assisted in its functions by
the Export Inspection Agencies (EIAs) located at
Chennai, Kochi, Kolkata, Delhi and Mumbai having
a network of 29 sub-offices and laboratories to back
up the pre-shipment inspection and certification
activity. In addition, EIC also designates inspection
agencies and laboratories to supplement its own
activities as required.
Th
e main functions of EIC are (i) to advise the central
government regarding measures to be taken for
enforcement of quality control and inspection in
relation to commodities intended for export and
(ii) to draw up programmes for quality control and
inspection of commodities for exports.
In the changing Global Scenario, as India’s trading
partners are installing regulatory import controls,
the EIC has re-fashioned its role to develop voluntary
certification programmes besides regulatory export
control, especially in food sector. The Council is
seeking recognition for its certification by official
import control agencies of its trading partners, as
per provisions of WTO agreements, to facilitate
easier access to their markets for Indian exporters.
