Iran rejects imported cement
Published: 22 May 2006

Iran last year sent back five shipments of imported cement, which involved 30 to 35 per cent of the whole imported volume in 2005. Iran’s Standard Organization Non-Metal Research deputy, Nezamoddin Barzegari said, among the imported cement, five shipments had not met Iran’s standards; therefore Iran returned them. This official added that these returned shipments mostly had been sent back to China and Turkey. Barzegari also announced that so far this year, seven shipments of cement had been imported from which none had been reported low-quality.
