Chartered Engineers Certificate (CEC)


What is a CEC?

A CEC is a document that is required by Indian Customs to be able to import used or rebuilt machinery into India. (Other countries are now asking for them as well, we have recently provided them for Turkey for example.)

The format is very specific and requires certification of:
  • Full description and specification
  • serial number and age
  • price when new
  • selling price
  • assessment of condition
  • residual life

Who needs a CEC?

  • UK exporters supplying used machinery under a letter of credit where the provision of a CEC is a requirement of the L/C and has to be presented with the shipping documents

  • UK exporters selling with direct payment terms may also be asked to provide a CEC direct to their buyer as part of the terms of supply

  • Indian buyers purchasing on their own account from the UK (Or any other country) either direct or from on site or on line auctions

  • UK companies transferring production facilities to India


What is required to issue a CEC?

  • We need a copy of your sales invoice or intercompany transfer Invoice

  • An inspection of the machinery is needed, preferably under power although we realize that this is not always possible particularly for large machinery already dismantled and perhaps in storage

  • We also normally photograph the equipment

  • A report is then generated in an approved format certifying all the required points and giving an opinion of condition, value and residual life

We have over 20 years experience in this field and have never had a certificate rejected by Indian Customs, let us use this experience on your behalf to ensure a smooth importation process.
