The Certificate generated by the Independent Chartered Engineer/Customs Authority is called the Installation Certificate under EPCG.
The Export Promotion Capital Goods Scheme is for Duty-free import of Capital Goods or Machinery used for high-quality goods and services production. The EPCG Scheme comes with the Export Obligation of exporting finished goods produced from imported capital machinery that equals 6 times of the actual duty saved within six years from the License issued date. Installation Certificate is required because DGFT needs confirmation of the imported capital goods which are installed at the factory premises, and their use of capital goods have started for production.
The Chartered Engineering Services is provided by the Sapient to the EOU (Export Oriented units) to remain compliant i.e. to confirm that the machinery imported under EPCG has been installed at the specified location.
