On 4 July 2023, the Union Government under the SAC designated businesses selling online as an essential service. On 21 July 2023, the SAC’s Ministry of Commerce followed suit by releasing three notifications, among them an “Online Sales Business Registration Order” covering both the sale of goods and the provision of services. The notifications require e-commerce businesses to register within 6 months and contain requirements that are not much seen elsewhere, such as the pre-registration of the goods to be sold and their country of origin. In the seminar, we will take a look at how business owners might want to react.

Proposed agenda:

∎ What qualifies as an “online sales business” and what doesn’t?

∎ Which businesses are in the focus of the Ministry of Commerce?

∎ Update on the registration form and fees

∎ The many obligations of an online shop owner

∎ What should companies with a large assortment of goods do?

∎ Online sale of regulated goods – cigarettes, alcohol, telecommunication equipment, food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics

∎ Online businesses and consumer protection

∎ Digital payment; delivery methods

∎ Other licenses, in particular telecommunication licenses and Central Bank approval
