Renewal of Textiles Trader Registration
Textiles trader registration, upon approval by the Director-General of Trade and Industry, is valid for 12 months and is renewable.

If the textiles trader registration has been expired for more than 6 months, the applicant for renewal should follow the procedures of New Application for Textiles Trader Registration.
Provided that the renewal application is lodged before expiry of the current registration, the new validity period will normally commence on the date immediately following the expiry date of the current registration. If traders have not received the notification from the Department one month before expiry of registration, they should contact the Textiles Trader Registration Office.
Under normal circumstances, the Department will complete processing within three clear working days (excluding day of receipt and day of issue) after receipt of the application, the required supporting documents and evidence of payment / payment of registration renewal fee.
