Sep 25, 2019 | by Avantis RegTech Legal Research Team

The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) on September 19, 2019, has developed a new online platform for issuance of Preferential Certificate of Origin (CoC) which would be a single-point access for all Free Trade Agreement (FTAs) or Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs), for all designated CoC issuing agencies and for all export products.

The objective of the platform is to provide an electronic, paperless, contactless platform for the CoC application process. The platform will be available at the following URL: http://coo.dgft.gov.in.

However, DGFT requests the exporters to partner FTA or PTA countries to register on the platform using their IEC. Digital Signature would be required for the purposes of electronic verification in the application process. The digital signature would be the same as used in other DGFT online application.

The platform has been made live at present for registration purposes. Issue of CoC for India-Chile PTA will be started from September 25, 2019. Therefore, DGFT requested the exporters intending to take benefits under India-Chile PTA to immediately register on the new CoC platform. Accordingly, exporters of other FTA or PTA countries may also start registering on the new CoC Platform.
