The final list of 37 licenses for customs clearance was announced
The final list of 37 licenses for customs clearance was announced. One of the important points about customs clearance of goods, which in some cases slows down the clearance process or the so-called cessation of goods at customs, is the issuance of licenses that must be issued by various organizations and institutions and submitted to customs by goods owners or their representatives. These licenses generally have a control and inspection aspect and the purpose of issuing them is to prevent non-standard imported goods in terms of health, hygiene, safety, culture, environment and other items. It should be noted that in the case of goods that need to be licensed, their clearance is not possible until these licenses are submitted to customs, and the goods may be stopped at customs for a long time, which is naturally the sole responsibility of the owner of the goods or the licensing organization. And has nothing to do with customs and its operation. Fortunately, with the launch of the electronic system, the window of the cross-border trade unit at the customs has significantly reduced the number of problems for the owners of goods to obtain entry permits, and this is done non-physically by connecting the system to the electronic systems of neighboring organizations.
In this regard, the Center for Import and Affairs of Free and Special Customs Zones of Iran has published a list of 37 types of licenses that must be obtained from neighboring organizations and submitted to customs based on the relevant product categories to be cleared. The announcement states:
At present, with the electronicization of customs procedures and the electronic communication of customs with 22 partner organizations, it is not possible to clear any goods without obtaining a license, in other words, it is not possible to continue the customs formalities in the comprehensive customs system until a relevant license is provided.
According to the law, all imported goods must first obtain an order registration permit from the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade, and then the goods must be declared to customs, which is now an electronic process.
