“To do list” for SCOMET Policy/Procedure' for feedback/inputs from
industry for simplification of licensing procedure of SCOMET items
We would like to inform you that the Directorate General of Foreign Trade, New Delhi has issued Trade Notice No. 31/2018 dated 13.09.2018 regarding “To do list” for SCOMET Policy/Procedure' for feedback/inputs from industry for simplification of licensing procedure of SCOMET items.
This is further to several initiatives taken by DGFT in recent past, to streamline the processes of licensing of dual use SCOMET items, including policy interventions in the areas, where there existed policy gaps. These measures include centralised issue of SCOMET licenses from DGFT Headquarters, live status of license applications on the home page of DGFT website under 'export facilitation' and recent public notices simplifying the procedure for export of SCOMET items.
In continuation of the above trade measures, a 'Google spread sheet' containing `To do list for SCOMET Policy/Procedure' has been created. The Google spread sheet can be accessed at the URL address: goo.gl/TPiieG
We understand from the Trade Notice that while the industry would be kept updated on the status of action taken on their feedback/suggestions received so far, they can also add new issues in a separate row below the existing entries. These suggestions will also be taken into account and status would be updated from time to time.
Members exporting SCOMET items are requested to take note of this initiative and do the needful accordingly. The above said trade notice is available for reference using below link-
