Registration-cum-Membership Certificate (RCMC)

Print E-mail

According to the Foreign Trade Policy, a Registration-cum-Membership Certificate (RCMC) is required for exporters in order to avail benefits under the policy. Holding the certificate can also help exporters in availing benefits with respect to Customs and Excise. This certificate can be obtained from the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) which has been recognized as an Export Promotion Council (EPC) for the purpose of RCMC issuance

In order to obtain an RCMC, the exporter is required to mention his/her main line of business on the application made to the EPC.

The Case

A client of ours, who is an exporter, approached us for obtaining an RCMC. The client was in great hurry since he had a consignment in Mumbai that was kept on hold for want of an RCMC. The authorities refused to release the consignment without the certificate.

The client had tried various avenues for obtaining the certificate before approaching us, but in vain.

We had exactly one day left to get him an RCMC while the process normally takes a week’s time.

The Solution

We immediately collected all the documents required for submitting the application. We filled up the application and got it signed by the Director of the company.

A letter of authority was to be attested by a Chartered Accountant. Since the client was unaware of any CA, we helped him by getting the same and submitted it along with the application and other documents

We explained to the authorities, the urgency of the client’s requirement and we were able to get the certificate within a day’s time. Since all the required documents were submitted, the process was smooth.

The RCMC reached just in time and the consignment was moved
