Import quota

On 27 October 2014, the Turkish government decided to open an import quota for some kind of polypropylene at a volume of 10,000 tons. Imports within this quota remain duty free. The ordinary rate lies between 3-6.5 percent depending on the country of origin. It is the first time that Turkey has opened a quota on this product.
This ruling is valid from 1 January 2015 till 31 December 2015. 

Effective from 1 January 2016, the Turkish government extended the ITQ until 31 December 2016 while decreasing the in-quota levels on polypropylene (see related state act).
