The Department of Revenue had issued a Circular No 62/2002 dated 26.09.2002 on the aforesaid subject wherein the Central Board of Excise and Customs had re-examined the issue afresh. The Board had concluded that the service providers who actually require items like carpets, crockery, marble, chandeliers etc under the EPCG Scheme shall be given the same.

The regional offices may keep in mind Customs Circular No 62.2002 dated 26.09.2002 while issuing EPCG licences to service providers. However in the case of applications for import of items that are restricted for imports under the EPCG Scheme for service providers, the regional offices are required to seek a copy of a Chartered Engineer Certificate (CEC) justifying the requirement of the restricted item for imports under the EPCG Scheme.

The format of the CEC is given as an Annexure to this circular.

This issues with the approval of the Director General of Foreign Trade .
