Factory Establishment Licenses in Bangladesh
All factories and businesses in Bangladesh are required to register with the government in accordance with the requirements of the Factories Act and Rules. All factories in Bangladesh must have a factory establishment license, which is a legal requirement.
The District Office of the Department of Inspection for factories and Establishments (DIFE) is responsible for a factory’s construction, establishment or expansion, obtaining license or renewing it. It is an independent government agency in charge of inspecting Bangladeshi industries and other facilities for health and safety. Additionally, it offers factories education and training on worker health and Bangladeshi labor law enforcement.
