What is AD (Authorized Dealer) Code?

An Authorised Dealer Code (AD Code) is a 07-digit numerical code provided by the bank where your company has a current account. An AD Code must be registered at each port where your products are cleared by customs. During customs clearance, your Customs House Agent (CHA) will request the AD Code for that specific port.

The Importance of the AD Code?

Customs clearance requires a registered AD Code for export. You will be unable to generate your shipping bill number, which is required for customs clearance, if you do not have one. In the absence of a registered AD Code, the ICEGATE portal’s EDI system will not allow the generation of a shipping bill.

If you are qualified for government assistance, an AD Code registration with customs allows you to have the money deposited straight into your bank account. As a result, once you have obtained your Import Export Code, you should register for the AD Code at your customs port(s).

The following documents required for AD Code registration.

  • Bank Certificate as Customs public notice no 93/2020 Dt:29.07.2020 (format attached) (https://www.jawaharcustoms.gov.in/pdf/PN-2020/PN-93-2020.pdf)
