All home appliances in the Iranian marker should henceforth carry a printed identification number, otherwise they will be deemed contraband and their producers or sellers will be subjected to anti-smuggling penalties, the head of the Headquarters to Combat Smuggling of Goods and Foreign Exchange said. 
“Iran’s home appliances market has a turnover of 400 quadrillion rials [$2.23 billion]. The household market is sizable and smuggling in the field is very high and this is why the ID number scheme is being carried out first in this sector. We plan to gradually expand the scheme to include other products as well,” Ali Moayyed Khorramabadi was also quoted as saying by ILNA.
The official asked customers to demand ID numbers from sellers of home appliances to be reassured that the product they are buying is original and not a contraband.
