Due to the new US sanctions and the economic headwinds, production of poor quality and outdated (but apparently affordable) vehicles like SAIPA’s Pride cannot be banned, head of Iran Standard and Quality Inspection Company (ISQI) says.
In a talk with ILNA Ashkan Golpaygani said “In light of the harsh restrictions imposed by the United States and the steep decline in the value of the rial, domestic carmakers will certainly not be able to upgrade their vehicles and meet at least some of the new standards demanded by the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran (ISIRI).”
“However, the basic safety standards introduced in ISIRI’s latest upgrade for the automotive standards must be upheld,” he said.
