Exporting mugs to Turkey


Is anyone up to date with the registration and documentation required to export mugs to Turkey.
I understand that they need registering with the health authorities?
Any advice welcome.


Dear Joanna,

Companies exporting food contact materials to Turkey should provide the importer company with a ‘certificate of free sale’ that can be obtained from BIS. Please contact Guliz Kiymaz, sector lead for agri-food, who will put you in touch with the relevant BIS department.

Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website www.hmrc.gov.uk under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.

I would also suggest that you contact the Turkish Customs Authorities to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.
