Do we need export license to supply a large value order to Iran ?
The goods we have been asked to supply are blocks made from silicon carbide which will be used inside a furnace to produce aluminium. Our product – silicon carbide is not on the dual use list and the end user in Iran is not on sanction lists.
We have asked HM Dept. for Business do we need an import licence for this order. As yet they have not replied but we know it can take a while for them to come back with an answer.
The issue is now becoming urgent as the delivery time for the end user is critical as they wish to start producing aluminium again and we will lost the opportunity to supply to another supplier outside of the UK
