Turkey changes surveillance measures on LDPE imports
Previously, surveillance measures on LDPE imports (3901.10.90.00.11 customs tariff statistics position) were applied by having tax liabilities calculated over a customs unit value of $2200/ton for Iranian goods and $2000/ton for other origins. Surveillance measures were hereinafter reported to be executed by charging a customs unit value of $1350/ton regardless of the country of imports.
In order to import below the above-mentioned customs unit value, importers are required to obtain a surveillance certificate from the Ministry of Economy. The importers who do not have the surveillance certificate are required to add the difference on top of the customs value of the good under a category of “Other Foreign Expense”.
