    The Indian Armed Forces will provide a Trial Clearance Certificate to accelerate exports.

    Featured in:

    The Indian Tri-Service will issue Trial Clearance Certification to private sector companies that supplied their weapon systems for user trials, allowing them to sell these weapons to the export market even if the Indian Armed Forces do not acquire them.

    Numerous private sector businesses bid on and provide trials of their weapon systems to the Indian Armed Forces, which, following extensive trials, may or may not immediately acquire them for a variety of reasons that frequently impact the export potential of the weapon systems. Trial clearance certification will only be granted to companies whose trial-offered weaponry or items have passed the internal review of the Indian Armed Forces.

    Countries frequently acquire weapons that have previously been acquired by the host country, but in India, user trials can take a long time, and tenders are sometimes cancelled owing to bureaucratic red tape or changes in technical specifications. The Indian military continues to award contracts for weapons based on the lowest proposal, and the second-lowest bidder can now use trial clearance certification as a baseline for exporting its weapons.
