Change an article of car import rules
One article of the car import rules was changed, following the changes in the car import regulations to the country, the Council of Ministers last week agreed to ban the import of cars whose construction time is more than one year. According to the decision of the Council of Ministers and at the proposal of the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade, the government, in order to provide a coordinated and efficient mechanism for controlling quality goods and also preventing the import of used passenger cars, prohibits order registration and new cars. Last year, he agreed. According to this decree, from now on, only cars that are produced in the same year will be allowed to enter the country. According to Article 7 of the By-Laws on Technical Imports of Car Import, dated July 1, 2003, the entry of all types of passenger cars into the country whose production date is more than one year ago was prohibited. However, at the request of the Ministry of Industry, on February 6, 2012, during a amendment, the Council of Ministers changed the mentioned period to 3 years.
As it seems, the change in this article is directly related to the current situation of the country, ie the post-prohibition period; Following the changes that have taken place in the field of car imports, the Ministry of Industry intends to bring cars into the country according to current world standards. In this regard, Farhad Ehteshamzad, president of the Automobile Importers Association, said in an interview with “Dunya Eqtesad” that the limitation of car life has been limited in order to reduce car imports to the country, which has a direct effect on increasing the price of foreign cars. He says: “Before the announcement of this decree, many suppliers of imported cars could buy at a reasonable price of 2016 model cars in the new year, which had the same effect on the selling price of cars in the country market.” However, with the announcement of this decree, at present, only 2017 model cars are allowed to enter the country, which is definitely more expensive. They were buying at a good price, while the same car was being sold at a higher price in the domestic market.
