Turkey has incorporated provisions of the EU battery legislation in its national legislation. The two key legislative instruments are Regulation No. 25569 on Used Batteries and Accumulators (the "Regulation"), which was published in the Turkish Official Gazette on 31 August 2004 and entered into force on 01 January 2005, and was subsequently amended by Regulation No. 25744 to incorporate minor changes. The Regulation sets forth substance restrictions as well as provisions on labeling and marking. The Regulation is complemented by collection and disposal organizational schemes that were set up by importers and manufacturers after the Bylaw entered into force.

Implementation of Directive 2006/66/EC, which replaces Directive 91/57/EEC at the European level, is likely to be completed sometime between the end of 2010 and 2013, according to the Turkish national program.

In addition, Turkey has introduced a new set of requirements for imported batteries. Announcement 2009/15 from the Under secretariat of Foreign Trade, which was published in the Official Gazette under No. 27097 and came into force on 1 January 2009, requires imported batteries to be accompanied by certain identifying documents, test reports, and an Environmental Compliance Certificate.
