The foreign trade policies of the countries are completely monitored through numerical codes called “Customs Tariff position”, known as GTIP (Customs Tariff and statistical position) in the sector. So much so that now the decision of the import regime has become enough to record what tax rates will be applied to them, instead of just typing the GTIP numbers in the attached lists.
There are so many advanced developments in all areas that people seem to have lost the ability to watch the additional contributions of these developments through the final product with their bare eyes. These developments are happening not only in electronic devices but also in textile products. We need to know that the textile sector no longer produces a single product such as “Sumerbank calico”; there are different forms of weaving and coatings in each type of product. In this case, in order for foreign trade measures introduced to protect domestic production to be effective, it is necessary to be careful against GTIP shifts. It should not be ignored that the misrepresentation will be reflected in the importer as additional accrued taxes and related fines.
For this reason, the definition and declaration of goods should not be made only with the examination of documents if necessary, tariff must be given through advanced technical microscope and “FT-IR spectrophotometer” by analyzing samples of goods.
In this article, the analysis of semi-finished inputs of “coats” and coats, which are of great importance especially in the textile sector, the determination of GTIP and in particular the place and importance of their analysis in determining GTIP will be discussed.
