702 - 06/10 - Iron Ore Imports - China

The Association would like to advise Members about the current situation regarding the import of iron ore into China.

It has become apparent that that import of iron ore with a Fe content of less than 60% in China requires a suitable import permit. Permits have become increasingly difficult to obtain and problems have been noticed with low grade iron ore shipments arriving in China from India, in particular.
