LONDON (ICIS)--Regulations requiring consulate approval of paperwork for all trade between Iran and Turkey have now been completely cancelled., according to sources on Thursday.

The Turkish government had announced that the measures would be ended but it border officials were still requesting approval on paperwork until 17 October.

The Turkish Customs General Directorate was waiting for official confirmation that Iran would also remove it's customs requirement, according to a source.

This should ease passage of Iranian imports into Turkey.

Some players had speculated that Turkish buyers were put off Iranian products because of the extra time and cost added by the regulations.
