With the Presidential Decree numbered 5251 and dated March 2, 2022, which was issued and entered into force on March 3, 2022, new basic principles to be applied to the export of agricultural products from Ukraine were introduced. The purpose of the decree could be summed up to prevent as much as possible interruptions in Ukraine’s exports that may occur as a result of the war and to meet Turkey’s needs for Ukrainian products.

According to the newly introduced regulations, certificates issued by the Ukrainian authorities and to be presented to the Turkish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry will not be required during official inspections until the Ukrainian authorities resume issuing the certificates in question. .

The translation of the corresponding provision is as follows:

“In order to ensure the security of food supply and to prevent food access problems that may arise from developments in Ukraine, regarding the export or transit of loaded agricultural products from Ukraine , official certificates and documents which must be submitted to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (the Ministry) under the Veterinary Services, Plant Health, Food and Feed Code number 5996 and dated 11.06.2010 will not be required during official inspections until the relevant Ukrainian authorities resume issuing such certificates and documents.”
