3. All stakeholders may note that issuing agencies who do not use the Online System for issue of non-preferential CoOs after 1st August 2022 will invite penal action and can be subject to ‘de-listing’ as an authorised agency. The authorised agencies are therefore required to sensitize the exporting community and their constituents regarding the Online system and its registration requirements well in time. Any issues relating to the IT system and its implementation may also be brought to our notice for appropriate action.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
