Turkey: Pollution fines and criminal proceedings 2021

6 January 2021

Pursuant to the Turkish Environmental Code, the level of applicable sea pollution fines scale is up-dated yearly and our local correspondents, Omur Marine, have therefore kindly provided us with the attached circular advising the new rates applicable from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021 including practical information on acceptable security and recommended loss prevention measures.

Our local correspondent recommends all members to take immediate contact with them to avoid delay and complications in connection with an alleged pollution incident. Pictures and/or videos may assist in defending the case.

The Association is grateful to Omur Marine for contributing to this update.
