The Indian government has lifted curbs on export of diagnostic kits (diagnostic or laboratory reagents on a backing, preparation diagnostic or laboratory reagents), with an August quota of 501 million units.
According to a Ministry of Commerce notification, a firm applying for permission to export should be a manufacturer of diagnostic kits (Certification of registration from concerned Department/ Authority to be supplied).
Exporters may apply online through DGFT’s EOM system for export authorization (Non-SCOMET Restricted items). There is no need to send any hard copy of the application via mail or post, the notification said.
Exporters, who have already filed an online application for export of these diagnostic kits need not apply again. However, they need to submit the documents as described in this trade notice through email.
