Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On 20 March 2012, the Turkish government announced in Circular No. 2012/6 the implementation of the single-window system, which aims at coordinating border control procedures, such as port transactions, customs transactions, technical controls and licensing through an integrated management system. Under the single-window system, all required documentation and information needed for the import or export operation is submitted by the trader to a single application point. Under the single-window system, importers and exporters benefit from faster customs clearance and reduced customs costs.
