India’s pharmaceutical industry is ginormous as you might be aware of and it has helped us for several years to export pharmaceutical products to different countries worldwide. India has remained in the top three rank in terms of pharmaceutical exports. India has worked itself up to become the global research hub and pharmaceutical manufacturing powerhouse.
The pharmaceutical exports in the country have witnessed a spike recently and have also become a feasible business scope. Here’s how exporters in India undertake the process of exporting pharmaceutical products to different parts of the world.
Exporting Pharmaceutical Products Overseas
The Pharmaceutical Manufacturer is Required to Register Itself for Exporting Business
It is worth keeping in mind that the Foreign Trade Policy of India has mandated that only the pharmaceutical companies that are Government-registered are allowed to export pharmaceutical products from India. For the pharmaceutical company to export pharmaceutical products, they must be registered under the Director-General of Foreign Trade. They would also be required to seek their unique Import and Export Code.
Looking for Potential Buyers and Vendors
After being done with the necessary paperwork, the pharmaceutical wholesalers would have to get in touch with the pharmaceutical wholesalers from the importing countries. Thereafter, the process of looking for potential vendors and buyers begins.
Learning the Prevailing Laws of the Importing Country
After getting the interested buyer, the pharmaceutical company would have to sit and teach themselves all the import-export laws that are prevalent in the importing countries. Furthermore, to stay away from any further complications and obstacles, they would also have to legally register their pharmaceutical products in that respective country.
Get Approved From The Drug Controller General of India
Once they are approved to export their pharmaceuticals to the importing country, they would have to acquire the same approval from the Drug Controller General of India. This process is deemed necessary as medicines can affect the overall health of the consumers.
Finalising Shipping Methods
The company owners would have to conduct research and then choose the type of shipping method that is convenient for them. The entrepreneurs, by all means, must only found on reliable agencies to export their products, lest they might be unnecessary delays.
Anticipating the Purchase of the Order
Once the formalities are all done, the pharmaceutical products company would have to practice patience and wait for the vendor to zero in on the finalised order. Apart from the order confirmation, the buyer would also send you an invoice that would comprise all the important details on freight, packing, and pharmaceutical products.
Making A Commercial Invoice
The entrepreneur would then be required to create a commercial invoice against the proforma invoice sent by the buyer based on how they have decided to finance the product.
Signing Contracts with Shipping
The business owner would then have to put their signature for the contract with the shipping forwarding company to make sure the order is catered to efficiently.
Once the documentation process is completed, the last step involves the customs clearance which is carried out by the agent. And after the pharmaceutical’s products have got their customs clearance, they would be exported to the importing country.
These are some of the procedures involved when exporting pharmaceutical products overseas. Before choosing your pharmaceutical export company for your business, make sure you understand how pharmaceutical exports work and if the exporting company is abiding by all of it, especially the legal part.
