Title: Dogal Re?ine ve Dogal Re?inelerden Elde Edilen Re?ine Asitleri Ithalatinda Tarife Kontenjani Uygulanmasi Hakkinda Karar
On the 20 November 2014 the government of Turkey decided to set a quota for natural resins and acids extracted from natural resins. Through this decision 50,000 tons of resin may be imported duty free rather than at the ordinary rate of 5 percent. There has not been a quota prior to the announcement.
The stated quota is valid from 1 January 2015 until 31 December 2015.
Effective from 1 January 2016, the Turkish government extended the import tariff quota until 31 December 2016 while decreasing the in-quota levels on rosin and resin acids (see related state act).
