Turkey (Türkiye): Amendment to customs regulation for certificates of origin

Turkey: Amendment to customs regulation

An amendment to the customs regulation—published today, 20 October 2020, in the official gazette—concerns how to remedy situations when a certificate of origin was not attached to a customs declaration.


The amendment adds language to temporary article 16 of the customs regulation (an unofficial English translation is as follows):

(3) Although the declaration is registered before the publication date of this paragraph and there is no certificate of origin attached to the declaration, and which is found to have not been paid, underpaid or declared other financial obligations such as a trade policy measure based on origin or additional financial obligation, It is possible to submit an appropriate certificate of origin to the customs administration within six months.

The effective date of the amendment is 20 October 2020.
