Iranian importers found way to push goods through customs
Tehran, Iran, Jan.4
Iran's customs are facing an inflow of unregistered goods, that have been stored at warehouses and ports, which means that despite strict rules, some importers are trying to bring in their goods without going through procedures.
"Some individuals intend to imports goods before even registering the order so it would lead to huge depot at the customs and would pressure government to decide on releasing the products," Deputy Chairman of Iran’s Trade Promotion Organization Mohammad-Reza Modudi said, Trend reports via Tasnim news agency.
He went on to add that domestic production is very important for Iran, so if any raw materials are stucked at the customs, the issue should be resolved through judiciary.
"The judiciary usually cooperates, and the goods are released immediately, so the importers would not have problems if they follow legal directions," Modudi said.
He went on to say that those goods, brought in by certain importers, without registration, to push the government to release them, are not basic goods.
"For example, the imported cars, which are currently held at the customs, either did not follow the legal procedures, or didn't have proper registration," he said.
