HOW WE HAVE HELPED

Removing technical barriers to trade between Turkey and the EU

Services provided

Accreditation | Certification | Legal metrology | Standardization

BSI, UKAS, the UK Department of Trade and Industry, the German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Association Française de Normalisation (AFNOR), Ankon Consulting and NORM Consulting partnered with the Turkish Ministry of Economy and KalDer (the Turkish Society for Quality) to help remove technical barriers to trade between Turkey and the EU.

This two-year project analysed the current quality infrastructure and identified technical assistance needs. The partners organized and delivered training to build institutional capacity. They conducted inter-laboratory comparisons and proficiency testing, updated legislation and enabled knowledge transfer to both the public and the private sectors.

As a result the Turkish conformity assessment and metrology sectors have become better organized. Certification and assessment bodies know more about EU directives and accreditation. More SMEs are participating in standardization and the quality of Turkish laboratory services has increased. Consumer awareness of product safety and standardization has improved.
