CE Marking: CE Marking in Turkey

I supplied a corporate certificate of conformity with my shipping documents, why are my goods still detained at Turkish Customs?
As Turkey has adopted the European Union New Approach Directives, it is still undergoing a learning process as to what are the Directives and what is CE marking. Exporters and importers are often asked for Certificates of Conformity prepared by EU recognized Notified Bodies. If a customs detainment takes place for companies that are allowed to self certify conformity based on the EU directives (i.e. low voltage, electromagnetic compatibility, portions of the machinery directive etc.), you would only need to contact Ms. Ozge Cirika at, and the Under Secretariat for Foreign Trade will be notified and a request to have the shipment released would be made.
