Factory Establishment Licenses in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, all factories and enterprises are required to register with the government in accordance with the Factories Act and Rules. All factories in Bangladesh are required by law to have a factory establishment authorization.

The District Office of the Department of Inspection for Factories and Establishments (DIFE) is responsible for the construction, establishment, and expansion of a factory, as well as its license acquisition and renewal. It is an impartial government agency responsible for inspecting the health and safety of Bangladeshi industries and other facilities. In addition, it educates and trains factories on worker health and Bangladeshi labor law enforcement.

The government has implemented an online application service for obtaining a business license. The Labor Inspection Management Application (LIMA) is a Department of Inspection of Factories and Establishments portal that significantly simplifies the application procedure.

Documents Needed:

1.Construction layout of the plant

3.Completely filled out Forms 1 and 2.
