According to a statement made by the Turkish Plastics Industry Foundation (PAGEV), a declaration dated February 17, 2015 which caused congestion at the borders and brought production at a significant number of companies from different sectors almost to a standstill has been updated again. The declaration, which required a certificate and approval from Turkey’s Ministry of Environment during the entrance of plastic raw materials to the country, had resulted in up to a 30-kilometer-long truck queues at the borders.

As a result of some talks at the ministerial level by PAGEV, a new adjustment has been made on the above declaration and the new declaration entered into force as of March 4, 2015 upon the publication on the Official Gazette. However, PAGEV stated that the aforementioned issue had not been completely solved yet as the congestion at the borders gates moved to the relevant Provincial Directorates for Environment and Urban Planning.

According to the latest statement from PAGEV, a third update has been made on the aforementioned declaration on March 14, 2015 and the new declaration has entered into force after being published on Official Gazette. Through the new declaration, the articles calling for receiving “Out of Scope Text” from the Provincial Directorates for Environment and Urban Planning and requiring the imported material to be analyzed in laboratories are abolished. Imports will be performed via the delivery of the necessary documents stated on the declaration to customs once the raw materials arrive.

PAGEV also stated that they will continue to carry out studies in order to return to the declaration depending on the importer statement which was effective before the declaration dated February 17, 2015.
