International shipments Turkey: what does it change?
At the beginning of this year, Turkey’s government had sent a letter to the United Nations formally requesting that it be referred to as Türkiye.
DG TAXUD has published an information note on the use of the new name ‘TÜRKIYE’ for the customs administrations of the Member States.
The Turkish authorities have already started using the new name ‘TÜRKIYE’ on proofs of origin and movement certificates. They have ensured, however, that Turkish customs offices will continue to accept proofs of origin and movement certificates with the previous designation, considering that it will take some time to adapt to this change.
Following the consultations with member states, the EU Council reached an agreement on the use of the new official name of the country ‘TÜRKIYE’ in the customs documentation.
