The Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade and the Headquarters for Combating Smuggling of Goods and Foreign Currency have joined forces to stop contraband auto parts from entering the country.

“More and more contraband auto parts of poor quality have been entering the country and are sold on the domestic market,” Deputy Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Mojtaba Khosrotaj Said.

As a first step for tackling the issue, the ministry has issued a directive for major local auto parts producers, namely SAPCO and Sazeh Gostar. The directive stipulates that the producers should introduce tighter measures and ensure that the parts are authentic and have an acceptable quality, SHATA News reported.

“Automotive companies offering after-sales services such as ISACO, Bahman Group and Mazda Yadak have also been notified and must not use contraband or substandard parts,” he said.

Khosrotaj said Iran’s auto parts industry employs nearly 270,000 people.

“In order to further develop the local industry, aside from investment, new incentives must also be introduced,” he said.
