Import-related non-tariff measure, nes
The government of Turkey on 30 December 2017, introduced simplified customs procedures for EU exports entering the Turkish jurisdiction.
Specifically, according to the new regulation, EU exports entering Turkey (as imported goods) will for the first time be able to solely rely on the submission of the exporter's declaration to the Turkish customs administration – as with the new regulation the exporter's declaration will for the first time be sufficient in order for EU goods to be allowed entrance in the Turkish jurisdiction.
Previously, besides the exporter´s declaration, EU exporters to Turkey, were additionally required to submit additional proof of origin documents such as a certificate of origin and a supplier declaration. With the new regulation, in the presence of the exporter's declaration, the additional submission of documents such as the certificate of origin and supplier declaration, has for the first time become redundant – as prior to this, the submission of all three documents was required (i.e. the certificate of origin, supplier's declaration, and exporter's declaration).
Nevertheless, the new regulation still provides exporters the flexibility to rely on submitting the certificate of origin or the supplier’s declaration to the customs administration, should they choose so. Specifically, according to the new regulation, should parties still choose to rely on submitting the certificate of origin or the supplier’s declaration to the customs administration, they will for the first time be able to do so, without needing to additionally submit the exporter's declaration as well.
