1. BACKGROUND
1.1. Relevant country background
The European Council at its December 1999 meeting in Helsinki confirmed that Turkey is a
candidate state destined to join the Union on the basis of the same criteria as applied to the other
candidate states. Besides, on 3rd October 2005, the negotiations for the accession of Turkey for full
membership have started. A precondition of membership is that candidate countries must align their
national laws, rules and procedures with those of the European Union in order to give effect to the
entire body of EU law contained in the Acquis Communautaire. During this process one of the
major challenges is the need for creating/improving administrative structures/capacity to adopt,
implement and enforce related legislation effectively.
1.2. Current state of affairs in the relevant sector
The Customs Union between Turkey and the EU was established as of 1st January 1996 in
accordance with Decision No.1/95 of the EU-Turkey Association Council. Decision No. 1/95 also
suggested adopting wide-ranging legislation in the field of trade, as well as being party to
conventions in the fields of industrial, intellectual and commercial property rights.
As a consequence of the Customs Union, the Turkish Customs Legislation was revised and
modernised accordingly and the Customs Tariff System was harmonized to the EU Combined
Nomenclature. The EU Single Administrative Document (SAD) was introduced throughout Turkey
on the establishment of the Customs Union.
The Customs Law No. 4458, with Customs Regulations, Notifications and Circulars, has been in
force since February 2000. A new Customs Regulation was issued in May 2002 and came into force
on 1st July 2002. Additionally the Law No. 1918 on the Interdiction and Pursuit of Smuggling was
repealed and a new Anti-Smuggling Code No. 4926, which is consistent with the Customs Law No.
4458 and the new regulation, was put into effect on 10th July 2003. A new Customs Enforcement
Regulation, which is aligned to the Anti-Smuggling Code No. 4926, was issued on 7th November
2003. These legislatives changes have provided the basis to implement the Customs Union between
Turkey and the EU. In order to better implement the EU customs acquis, TCA prepared several
projects to be financed by Pre-accession funds: In 2003, “Modernization of Customs
Administration-I” (TR 0303.01), in 2004 “Modernization of Turkish Customs Administration-II”
(TR 0403.01), in 2006 “Modernization of Turkish Customs Administration-III” (TR 0603.07), and
in 2007 “Modernization of Turkish Customs Administration-IV” (TR 0702.03). Projects were
approved by the Commission.
MODERNIZATION OF TURKISH CUSTOMS ADMINISTRATION - IV
Establishment of a Regional Customs Laboratory in Istanbul
Turkish Customs Administration has responsibility to find the essential character of the goods, and
to assist the classification process. Our inspection officials decide the tariff headings. But
laboratories guide very clearly during the classification process in the view of the Harmonized
System (HS), Combined Nomenclature (CN) and Turkish Customs Tariff. There are no other
institutes or laboratories carrying out such activities in Turkey. The available external public testing
laboratories at national level are specialized in dealing with particular types of goods with regard to
2
their quality and safety characteristics and are mainly connected with pollutants, toxins, minerals
and water quality analysis etc., but not concerning their identification and tariff classification. The
available external laboratories also needed significant investments for development of new working
methods and equipment to be able to support the full range of needs of the TCA.
As part of the process of modernization, TCA has initiated a nationally funded ‘Customs
Laboratory Modernization Programme’. The scope of the ‘Customs Laboratory Modernization
Project’ covers the design, construction and furnishing of the regional and central laboratories,
thereafter equipping the laboratories with the necessary instruments and equipment, and providing
technical training for staff on how to use the equipment etc. Based on the Customs pre-accession
blueprint for Laboratories, TCA has developed a strategy to restructure the customs laboratories
into 5 regional laboratories (Istanbul, Izmir, Izmit, Bursa and Mersin), in addition to a central
laboratory in Ankara.
At present, the procedures of laboratories in operation in Turkey subject to following provisions;
a) Determination of the description, kind, ingredients, quality, and quantity of goods by laboratory
analysis from a tariff classification point of view so as to enable the application of Turkish customs
tariff or exemptions.
b) Determination of the composition of goods so as to enable the application of prohibitions and
restrictions in compliance with the reservations specified within the context of the foreign trade
regime.
c) Carrying out certain analysis and technical procedures as required by the administration.
The purpose of the Customs Laboratory project is to establish a regional Customs laboratory in
Istanbul.
TCA focuses on the Istanbul laboratory in the first phase of the project since Istanbul accounts for
half of all goods imported to Turkey. The Istanbul laboratory will later serve as model for the four
remaining regional laboratories.
Systematic procedures and organization rather than equipment is the main focus.
The sub components of the project are as follows:
Sub-component 1: Equipping of Istanbul Laboratory (Supply)
The objective of this component is to equip the Customs Laboratory in Istanbul. In order to ensure
that, a supply contract which includes the procurement of laboratory instruments and equipment,
was included. The following results are targeted:

Customs Regional Laboratory in Istanbul equipped with analytical instruments and
equipment according to national legislation needs.
Sub-component 2: Development of laboratory procedures (Twinning light)
The objective of this component is to develop and conduct training programmes which have
therotical and practical training and workshops for the customs laboratory staff. In order to ensure
3
that, a twinning light contract, which includes the development of management policies and
working methods in line with EU best practice and training for the laboratory staff, was included.
The following results are targeted:
a) Developing and conducting training programmes to meet the classification and analysis needs
of laboratory personnel
b) Development of management policies and working methods of customs laboratory in line
with the best EU practice and assistance in increasing administrative capacity
c) Conducting workshops on the use of databases of EU customs laboratories such as ILIADe
and ECICS with 25 participants at least
d) Developing and conducting training programmes on topics such as GLP-Good Laboratory
Practice and ISO 17025.
2. DESCRIPTION OF THE ASSIGNMENT
2.1. Global objective
To contribute to timely and successful implementation of the EC funded TR 0702.03 Modernisation
of Turkish Customs Administration-IV project purpose of which is to establish a Regional Customs
Laboratory in Istanbul. With the application of the instrumental analysis, firstly usage of primitive
methods will be abandoned and thus coordination of customs laboratories will be achieved.
Secondly, by means of this study there will be a reduction in the number of samples which are sent
to other institutions’ laboratories because of the unavailability of analysis done in customs
laboratories and thanks to instrumental analysis customs laboratories will work effectively,
efficiently, confidentially, quickly and systematiclly.
2.2. Specific objectives
The specific objective of this assignment is, after the equipping of Istanbul Laboratory, to provide
technical assistance for meeting the classification and analysis needs of laboratory personnel,
conducting workshops and developing of management policies and working methods of customs
laboratory in line with the best EU practice and assistance in increasing administrative capacity and
comparing the legislative and physical structure of the Turkish and EU Customs Laboratories.
2.3. Requested services including suggested methodology
The services to be provided in cooperation with the benecificiary by the Member State (MS) under
this contract should include 4 main activities below:
(All activities will be carried out in two groups in subsequent time frames to make the necessary
revisions and adjustments taking into account the problems the first group may encounter.)
At the beginning of these activities, there will be a kick off meeting.
Activity 1: ( 2 weeks x 2 groups)
4
Briefing on Turkish Customs Laboratories (TCL) and related legislation. Within these briefing
meetings the related articles of Turkish Customs Code and general information on TCL will be
summerized by customs experts. In other words, TCA will give information about Turkish Customs
Legislation and organizational structure in order to facilitate the MS work and thus guarantee the
fulfillment of this activity purpose.
Developing and conducting training programmes by the MS experts to meet the classification and
analysis needs of laboratory personnel.
Turkish Customs Administration has responsibility to find the essential character of the goods, and
to assist the classification process. Our inspection officials decide the tariff headings, but
laboratories guide very clearly during the classification process in the view of the Harmonized
System (HS), Combined Nomenclature (CN) and Turkish Customs Tariff. As a result, it is
important for the customs laboratories to define the analysis in compliance with the tariff
terminology. To do so laboratory personnel should be trained in accordance with the classification
(especially chemistry chapters) and analysis topics. This training program will also help the
laboratory staff to use the newly purchased equipment efficiently namely to practice the right
instrumental analysis while using the laboratory devices.
Because of the structure of the HS, the goods are categorised according to chapters and headings
such as petroleum, basic chemistry, polymers, food, textile, metal etc. So while developing and
conducting training programmes on the classification and analysis methods, the above mentioned
topics should be taken into consideration. By conducting these activities in line with these criteria,
the efficiency of the training program will be increased.
At the end of this activity, TCA expects the MS to prepare a handbook about classification of
petroleum, basic chemistry, polymers, food, textile, metal products and their specific analysis
methods which is used for classification of goods and Harmonized System number (ASTM, DIN,
ISO etc),
Activity 2: (1 week x 2 groups)
Development of management policies and working methods of customs laboratory in line with the
best EU practice and assistance in increasing administrative capacity.
Organization, management, daily operation of customs laboratories which analyse goods by using
instrumental analysis and determination of working methods and practical applications in customs
laboratories are important. Development of management policies and working methods of customs
laboratories give an opportunity to foresee the possible problems that can be faced during the
analysis process. With a plan, the laboratories could work more systematically and get more
effective solutions. For these reasons, the TCA expects to the MS to compose an organization plan
for the customs laboratories including deparments, working groups etc.
Activity 3: (1 week x 2 groups)
Conducting workshops on the use of databases of EU customs laboratories such as ILIADe and
ECICS with 25 participants at least.
By arranging workshops, the application of ILIADe and ECICS (or any other databases which are
used by MS Administration) in EU Laboratories are expected to be acquired by customs
5
laboratories in Turkey. ILIADe (Intra Laboratory Inventory Of Analytical Determinations) is a
database where analytical methods of customs laboratories are used and shared among the users. It
has been developed by Italian Customs Administaraiton and used since 2002 on Internet. The
purpose of this database is to facilitate the accessibility of analytical methods used in EU
regulations and thus make the laboratories more efficient.
ECICS is also a databese (European Customs Inventory of Chemical Substances) which lists some
35 400 chemical names (for about 28 600 chemical substances) in eleven Community languages
along with their tariff classification in the European Community's Combined Nomenclature (eightdigit CN codes). The CN is based on the "Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding
System" emanating from WCO, in use throughout the world. Each product listed in ECICS also has
a CUS -number, assigned by DG Taxation and Customs Union, which is an easy identifier to
search the database and to communicate with Customs, and a Chemical Abstracts Service Registry
Number (CAS RN), a system used to identify chemical products the world over.
The aim of this activity is to facilitate the trade and strenghten the control on chemicals by the help
of stated databases. Conducting the activities on the bases of chapters of HS is suitable for our
laboratories organization. By using these databases efficiently Turkish Customs Laboratories are
expected to work in close conformity with the EU Laboratories.
In addition, during this activity EU’s Revised Customs Blueprints will also be taken into account to
ensure the competitiveness of the customs laboratory standarts in Turkey. Thus, the laboratory in
Istanbul to be established under the modernisation project may serve as a model and lead to the
future customs applications in Turkey.
For this activity TCA expects the MS to prepare a guide on the usage and purposes of ILIADe and
ECICS databases and if avalible the database developed by the MS Customs Administration.
Activity 4: (3 weeks x 2 groups)
Developing and conducting training programmes on topics such as GLP-Good Laboratory Practice
and ISO 17025.
Istanbul Laboratory is practising a new system which uses Instrumental Analysis Methods in goods
analysis. The main purpose of this activity is to create a laboratory which will operate effectively,
efficiently, confidentially, quickly and systematically by taking GLP and ISO 17025 laboratory
accreditation trainings.
GLP is a quality system which belongs to the planning, applying, monitoring, recording, archive
making and reporting of environment and health security except clinical studies. While conducting
analysis, it is important for the laboratory personnel to take care of the environment and their health.
Hence, GLP training is expected to give the opportunity to the laboratory staff to work in better and
safer conditions.
It is believed that accreditation of analysis methods applying in laboratories is needed for supplying
uniformity of analysis conducting in customs laboratories both in the same laboratory and among
different laboratories and maintaining the quality of the analysis results.
Within the context of EN ISO 17025, the following points are expected to be examined:
*Gap and Need Analysis
*Quality management system
6
*Creation of a quality management handbook
*Laboratory Accreditation Applications
*Validation
*Measurement uncertainty
Thus, it is aimed to develop a EU compatible structure and working methods/procedures for
customs laboratories.
At the end of this activity, it is expected that the MS experts will prepare a handbook on GLP
application steps regarding laboratory systematic procedure.
Activity 5: (5 working days)
Working visit to the Member State Customs Administration.
After completing the theoritical trainings, it is planned that practical trainings will be held on site.
For that purpose, three customs chemists and two experts from TCA will visit MS for working visit.
At the end of these activities, a closing meeting will be arranged.
2.4. Required outputs
The main outputs from the TWL team shall be

