Import Export Code RegistrationIf you are into international trade, import export code is probably your term for the document that records the steps necessary for a shipment’s transportation from one country to another. This information helps to avoid any potential customs hassles. The process of exporting and importing goods is becoming more complicated due to increasing global trade volumes, which has necessitated the need of these documents and procedures. However, in recent times it has come to light that many exporters and importers have been duped by fake import export codes or have otherwise been subjected to economic losses through an expired code or a fraudulent one when they were not delivered on time due to delays with customs paperwork and preparation. In order to prevent this from happening, the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provides a free online service for anyone who needs to retrieve an import export code for a specific shipment or for a future shipment. This is done through the use of their IEC Online tool that allows you to generate an official and authentic import export code within minutes with just a few clicks of your mouse or other web enabled device’s buttons. This code has many names, like importer exported code, import export code, import export license, import export number, IE code, IE license etc. You can issue this code in either your name or under company’s name. Once issued, it is valid for all its division/units/factories/branches.
