Pursuant to the Turkish Environmental Code, the new pollution fine tariff effective as of 1 January 2023 has been declared in the Official Gazette by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. Our local correspondents, Omur Marine, have accordingly kindly provided us with the attached circular advising the new rates applicable from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023.
Our local correspondent recommends all members to take immediate contact with them to avoid delay and complications in connection with an alleged pollution incident. They can also assist on practical information of acceptable security and recommended loss prevention measures.
The Association is grateful to Omur Marine for contributing to this update.
