Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC)

Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC) was set up in 1955 under the sponsorship of Ministry of Commerce, Govt. of India, for export promotion of engineering goods, projects and services from India. Initially started with a few hundreds of engineering units as an small outfit, with a passage of time it has grown to be the largest Export Promotion Council having membership of nearly 12,000 from amongst large Corporate Houses, Star Trading Houses, Small & Medium Scale Units (SME), Trading Houses, etc. Out of the total membership of the Council, 60% constitutes the SMEs.
   
The steady growth in the export of engineering goods from India has been the continuous innovation and setting up quality standards in manufacturing and in delivering services – this is evident as a large number of exporters are ISO 9000 or equivalent accredited. EEPC – right from its inception has been insisting the exporting community on the quality parameter – and the Council itself has the distinction of achieving the ISO 9002 accreditation from world renowned KPMG. This has further been upgraded to ISO 9001:2000 for designing and organizing exclusive Indian Engineering Exhibitions abroad.
 
Engineering exports from India has been steadily growing and the performance has probably exceeded all expectations ever since the birth of the Council. Apart from being one of the largest stakeholders in the total exports out of India, – the engineering exporters are the foremost net foreign exchange earner in the country. As the engineering sector is extremely diversified, the Council has set up different Product Panels with a view to ensure that all possible & potential Indian products reach out to the global markets.
EEPC aggressively peruses a number of activities & services for its exporting community, its members & the potential overseas buyers with a two-point objective of facilitating exports of Indian engineering products & services to the global market and to provide the overseas buyers true value.
