  • The issue dates of the selected licenses fall within the same fiscal period.

  • The status of all the selected licenses is Approved.

  • The port ID is the same for all the selected licenses.

  • The status of the selected licenses is either Original or Domestic. You cannot merge a combination of original and domestic licenses.

  3. In the Merge EPCG licenses form, click the Authorization information FastTab. Then, in the Approval details field group, in the Merge license to field, select the authorization ID for the EPCG license to merge the selected licenses with. Click Select.

  4. Click Export obligation period. In the Create export obligation periods form, set up export obligation periods for the merged EPCG license, and then close the form.

In the EXIM EPCG Schemes form, the merged schemes are updated to include the following information:
