Inward processing authorisation certificate and inward processing procedure are designed to give enterprises the chance to process goods imported outside Turkish customs area. By this way enterprises can make decisions on whether they are going to sell finished products in or out of Union. Inward processing procedure can be used for goods that will be processed with standard transactions to protect them, to improve their appearance or marketing quality and to prepare for distribution or resale.
After processing operations, products can be exported again or released for free movement. Besides importation tax, tax payment liabilities and trade politics precautions will be applied. But it is also possible to keep processed products at customs warehouses or free zones.

With one of the said regulations, Turkish exportation incentive system was cancelled and Inward Processing Regime (IPO) was enacted with a decree. This decree numbered 95/7615 came into force on 1st January 1996. Inward Processing Regime (IPO) numbered 2005/8391 came into force on 27th January 2005.
