Turkey makes correction on declaration causing congestion at borders
As a result of some talks at the ministerial level by Turkish Plastics Industry Foundation (PAGEV), a new adjustment was made on the above declaration and the new declaration has entered into force as of today upon the publication on the Official Gazette.
In line with the new declaration, the following adjustments have been made: 1) the requirement of getting a document from an accredited body as to the originality of the sample from the imported raw materials is abolished; 2) the “Out of Scope Text” will be able to be received from the Provincial Directorate for Environment and Urban Planning where the relevant customs office is located, instead of that of the customs border office; 3)if deemed necessary, the Provincial Directorate for Environment and Urban Planning will be able to send every lot to the customs laboratories or to other laboratories which fit for the purpose. The former declaration requires a test from an accredited body and 4) an invoice taken from a manufacturer or exporter, producer certificate and an attached analysis certificate will be sufficient to cover the “Out of Scope Text”.
PAGEV commented that via the new declaration, companies will be able pull their waiting goods from customs and added that they will continue talks to turn back to the declaration depending on the importer statement which was effective before the declaration dated February 17, 2015.
