How To Import Medicines and Food Supplements in India?

I want to know about the import procedure for veterinary feed supplements and antibiotics, kindly help me.


You can procure all antibiotics and feed supplement in India then why do you need to import these products. You can contact third party manufacturers in India for your need. It will be less costly and easily available to you.
India is second largest supplier of medicines to USA.

If you want to import, then you have to take an Import/Export (I/E) code from Director General of Foreign Trade office in district your firm is located. Documents required for filing application for import/export code number is:

  • Passport size photo
  • Pan card
  • Address proof
  • Firm address proof
  • Firm current account detail/Cancelled Cheque

After receiving I/E code number. Contact manufacturer outside India from where you want to import feed supplements and antibiotics. You will also require whole sale drug license in case of Antibiotics and FSSAI registration in case of Food/Feed Supplements.

Other than this you need to submit application at Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (Import & Registration Division). Read all requirement by downloading pdf file related to Registration of Imported medicines by clicking here
