UAE-India Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement

The UAE-India CEPA entered into force on May 1, 2022. As a result of the agreement, businesses can now take advantage of many new benefits, including:

  • Greater access for UAE exports entering the Indian market through the reduction or removal of tariffs on more than 80 per cent of products.
  • An open and non-discriminatory environment for cross-border trade with India.
  • Enhanced market access for UAE’s service providers across 11 sectors and more than 100 sub-sectors.
  • The removal of unnecessary technical barriers (TBT) for UAE and Indian exporters.
  • The use of international standards as a basis for technical regulations.
  • Enhanced access for UAE businesses to Indian government procurement opportunities.
  • Support for UAE companies through a 10 per cent price preference in UAE government procurement tenders.  
  • Assurance that UAE products will not be subject to India’s anti-dumping investigations as such products are merely transshipped.
  • A Joint Committee to assess, revise and propose amendments to the CEPA, including improving market access.

The UAE-India CEPA includes 18 chapters and 11 annexes

The UAE-India CEPA Market Access Dashboard

UAE exporters can now benefit from greater market access through preferential tariff rates. Some products will be subject to zero tariffs from day one - others will see them reduced over time. To determine the tariff classification (your HS code for your product), review the dashboard and find the tariff line description that best represents your product. From there you can view the preferential tariff rate for your product and estimate the charges.
