NOTE – As per Iranian Quarantine Regulations as from 24 September 2011, all crates/wooden boxes used for the shipment of goods must be made of treated timber and have the ISPM15 stamp as proof of the treatment on the timber used. This is a requirement regardless of whether the goods are packed by the agent or by the client. Please ensure that your wooden cases are of treated timber, if not Iranian Quarantine will order fumigation at the wharf, cost of which will be billed back to the agent/owner or the goods. Please note that the fumigation charges at the wharf are quite expensive and this will also be resulted in delaying the normal clearance process.
