In our foreign trade legislation, protection measures have been increased due to the harmonization efforts with the European Union and the shipment of products by Far East countries at prices that destabilize Turkey's domestic market balance. As a result, customs Law, Customs Regulation, Product Safety and Inspection, Unfair Competition, Safeguards and Surveillance Practices in Imports, Anti-Smuggling, and similar legislation are constantly changing and updated. Our legislation department follows these changes best and fastest, informs our customers, and organizes training and seminars for wide-ranging changes. In addition, the legislative changes published in the Official Gazette and the circular containing the legislation changes in customs, foreign trade, agriculture, health, and similar institutions are updated via e-mail and in our website's "Circular" section.

Customs Tariff Statistics Position (HS-Code) determination studies are carried out through the "Tariff Software System (UGM ERP)" developed by our company's software developers in a way that keeps up to date. Furthermore, our Customs Tariff Determination Board, in charge of tariff determination, consists of 25 people, including customs consultants, chemists, and HS-Code experts. Thus, the HS-Code determination process has been organized to enable the most comfortable, fastest, professional performance measurements and forward-looking information storage for the tariff demander and the respondent. In addition, six chemists and two food engineers support the Customs Tariff Determination Supreme Board, established to determine problematic HS-Code and where five permanent members are employed.
Aside from the complexity of foreign trade, customs, and banking legislation, foreign trade is constantly changing, which makes it necessary to link one's expertise in legal services with the relevant legislation and its general provisions. These legal services also assure our companies and ensure that the issue does not reach the level of smuggling charges.
