Quality Control and Pre-shipment inspection

In order to promote exports of quality goods as per the international standards, the Government of India has introduced compulsory Quality Control and Pre-Shipment Inspection for 90% of the items of export under one or the other system as per the Export (Quality Control & Pre-shipment Inspection) Act, 1963. Some of these items are:

 

(a) Food and agricultural products;

(b) Chemicals and allied products;

(c) Engineering goods;

(d) Textiles;

(e) Coir, jute and leather products such as footwear, etc.

 

The Government of India has set up Export inspection Council (EIC) to monitor the quality of goods meant for exports. The EIC has set up five Export Inspection Agencies (EIA) at Mumbai, Kolkata, Cochin, Delhi and Chennai. These ElAs have a network of neatly 62 offices throughout India. These EIAs have certain specific areas under their jurisdiction. For example, the EIA of Mumbai has jurisdiction over Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa.
