European Union is Turkey's biggest trade partner. National governments and the EU have strict regulations on consumer and environmental protection. Since the exporters need to ensure that their products comply with the legislation of the country that they supply with, İMMİB held the responsibility to inform its members about EU legislation and key EU political initiatives concerning industry. At an international level, the industry also complies with a number of programmes and conventions.
Providing information on legislations and voluntary initiatives
So İMMİB try to keep its members updated with these programmes and legislations. Some specific EU Legislation such as REACH, CLP, biocidal products, cosmetics, electronics (RoHS & WEEE) or initiatives such as eco-label and eco-design can be found on our website (in Turkish).
We also try to put basic information about some other domestic or international initatives such as climate change, waste management, global product strategy (GPS), Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions etc.
