NTE 2021/15: updates on licensing to Turkey
Published 13 December 2021
Having considered the factual position and the information available, the government is now satisfied that decisions on all licence applications to Turkey can be taken following a careful assessment against the Strategic Export Licensing Criteria on a case-by-case basis.
All existing and new export and trade licence applications for Turkey will now be assessed on a case-by-case basis against the Strategic Export Licensing Criteria.
The Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) is working with advisory government departments to clear through the backlog of existing applications as quickly as possible. We expect it will take around 8 weeks to clear the backlog of existing applications for Turkey.
Exporters will be informed of the decision on their applications as soon as possible.
