Nourlaw-10 December 2018- Tehran- One of the restrictions for controlling the foreign currency stream which were set by the Government in the current Iranian year, was its decision to impose order registration for imports to Free Zones.
In Iran, order registration requires the pre-approval of different authorities for the import of goods.
Considering the fact that order registration usually slows down the process of importing goods, the Council of Ministers, upon the proposal of the Supreme Council of Iran’s Free Trade, Industrial and Special Economic Zones, has decided to loosen this restriction by issuing a decree which stipulates, “for helping domestic production, the import of raw materials and parts needed for production in the Free Zones and within the frame of the list which will be announced by the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade, is allowed without order registration”.
Furthermore, it has been stated in the decree that the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade is obliged to prepare the list of the mentioned goods within the period of one week, to be rendered to the Supreme Council of Iran’s Free Trade, Industrial and Special Economic Zones and to be announced in a proper manner to the trade and production business persons.
