Import quota

 On 15 June 2015 the Turkish government decided to open for the first time a quota for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. As of 5 July until 31.12.2015 a total of 2000 ton of this product is imported duty free. 
The rate outside of the quota is 3.5% or 6% depending on the origin of the product.
Countries which have an Free Trade Agreement with Turkey have a zero rate outside the quota. 
 

The government extended the ITQ until 31 December 2016 on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene while increasing the in-quota level from 2,000 tonnes to 4,000 tonnes (see related state act).
