Announcement Regarding the Implementation of Procedures and Principles for Mandatory Deposit Management System Applications

According to the Procedures and Principles related to the Mandatory Deposit Management System Applications published by the Turkish Environmental Agency, the statement "deposited" must be included on the packaging/labels within the process to be announced and published separately by the Agency. However, starting from January 1, 2024, there will be no requirement for the presence of this statement on beverage packaging to be released to the market.

On the other hand, for new products first released to the market after January 1, 2024 (products not present in the market before January 1, 2024), besides the inclusion of the "deposited" statement as defined in the aforementioned Procedures and Principles, it is mandatory for these products to meet other criteria. Products that do not meet these criteria are prohibited from being released into the domestic market.

The official letter from the Turkish Environmental Agency regarding this matter, dated December 29, 2023, can be accessed here.
