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 2022 to 31 December 2022.

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.
