In case you already have an IEC, you need to update it on a yearly basis. According to the Foreign Trade Policy 2015-20 [para 2.15 of Handbook of Procedure (2015-20)], an IEC Holder shall be responsible for updating his/her IEC as and when a change takes place in details like name, address, constitution, ownership in Proprietorship firms, change in nature of the firm e.g. from proprietorship to partnership etc. or in any case at least once in a year.
Please note, if an IEC does not contain the latest or updated information (as required by the FTP 2015-20) about the IEC holder and his/her firm, the competent authority can cancel the said IEC. If an IEC is canceled for a particular Permanent Account Number (PAN), that PAN can never apply for an IEC again.
Only one IEC is issued against one Permanent Account Number (PAN). In the case of proprietary business, IEC would be issued against the PAN of the proprietor. While in the case of partnership firms and companies, IEC is issued against the PAN of the legal entity i.e. firm or company.
