3- FREEDOM TO PROVIDE SERVICES

Right of Establishment and Freedom to Provide Services
Law No.4817 on Work Permits for Foreigners, published in the Official Gazette No.25040 dated 6 March 2003, provided for the simplification of the legislation in this field by introducing a single authority for granting work permits. The said Law also repealed Law No. 2007 on “the Arts and Services Allocated for Turkish Citizens in Turkey”. Within this framework, the requirement to be a Turkish citizen for certain professions, such as interpreters, guides, photographers, drivers and waiters, is removed.
Banking Sector and Other Financial Institutions
As a result of the amendment made to the Banks Act No. 4389 by the Act No. 4672 dated 12 May 2001, a “consolidated own funds” definition has been introduced in line with Directive 2000/12/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council relating to the taking up and pursuit of the business of credit institutions, and this definition has been taken as the basis in calculations of standard ratios and lending limits to be applied on a consolidated basis.
The Banks Act No. 4389 published in the Official Gazette No. 23734 dated 23 June 1999 is in compliance with Directive 2001/24/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the reorganization and winding up of credit institutions.
Capital Markets
Since the publication of the first National Programme there has been no enacted or amended Law in order to harmonise with the EU legislation in this field.
Insurance
Since the publication of the first National Programme there has been no enacted or amended Law in order to harmonise with the EU legislation in this field.
Information Society Services
Since the publication of the first National Programme, there has been no enacted legislation concerning three Directives with which to be aligned under the title of Information Society Services. However, arrangements have been incorporated in some of the laws indirectly related to the subject. In the Law on the Protection of Consumers No.4077 amended with Law No.4822, contracts signed in an electronic environment are described as distant contracts. Associated with this Law, regarding the distant contracts, necessary amendments were made to the Implementing Regulation on Implementing Rules and Procedures on Distant Contracts, published in the Official Gazette No.25137 dated 13 June 2003. Moreover, calls for tender in electronic media are regulated by Public Procurement Law No.4734.
Personol Data Protection
Since the publication of the first National Programme, there has been no enacted or amended Law in order to harmonise with the EU legislation in this field.
Measures other than laws, enacted in order to harmonise with EU legislation, are given in Annex 3.1 together with the corresponding EU legislation.

II- MEASURES FOR HARMONISATION WITH THE EU LEGISLATION AND IMPLEMENTATION
PRIORITY 3.1 Identification and removal of potential obstacles to EC Treaty provisions related to the right of establishment and the freedom to provide services and implementation of aligned legislation in this area
1- Priority Description
A detailed scrutiny of Turkish legislation has been initiated in order to identify the potential obstacles to the EC Treaty provisions related to the right of establishment and the freedom to provide services. Accordingly, taking into consideration the negotiations on liberalisation of services and the reciprocity principle, the provisions requiring “Turkish citizenship” under specific laws will be gradually abolished for EU citizens for some professions before membership, while for some others the reciprocity principle will continue to be applicable for the removal of this requirement after membership.
The information regarding the legislative harmonisation efforts in the field of mutual recognition of professional qualifications directly related to the right of establishment and the freedom to provide services, including the Directive 99/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, is given in Chapter 2 - Free Movement of Persons.
Directive 86/653/EEC on the coordination of the legislation relating to the self-employed agents operating in different Member States of the EU underlines the issues to be considered by each Member State regarding agents in different Member States. The Committee Responsible for the Preparation of the Draft Turkish Commercial Law is still working and the aforementioned Directive was submitted to the Committee to be taken into consideration.

PRIORITY 3.2 Completion of legislative alignment in financial services and strengthening the supervisory structures and enforcement record including maintaining the independence of regulatory bodies
1- Priority Description
Banking Sector and Other Financial Institutions
Although existing Turkish banking legislation is in compliance with EU banking legislation to a great extent, harmonisation studies to ensure compliance with the EU legislation regarding the relationship between card holders and card issuers still continue.
The Draft Act on Bank Cards and Credit Cards has been prepared to establish principles regarding the usage of credit cards and bank cards issued by banks and other authorised institutions, the rights and liabilities of credit card and bank card users, agreements between card issuers and card acceptors, and to regulate the operating principles of institutions issuing cards or making card acceptor agreements.
The Draft in question has been prepared in compliance with European Commission Recommendation 88/590/EEC arranging the relations between card holders and card issuing institutions, and sent to the related Minister of State and the Deputy Prime Minister on 19 March 2003 to be submitted to the Council of Ministers in order to be debated in the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TGNA).
The Undersecretariat of the Treasury will instruct the non-bank financial institutions, such as leasing, factoring and consumer financing companies, to abide by the provisions of the Implementing Regulation on Accounting Practice prepared by the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency with the aim of harmonisation with Directive 86/635/EEC of the Council. This Implementing Regulation has been implemented by the banks since 1 July 2002.
Capital Markets
Completing harmonisation of the capital markets’ legislation and strengthening enforcement are priorities, parallel to the implementation of the Financial Service Action Plan which has been set forth by the EU for the formation of an integrated financial services market.
Through the amendments to the Capital Market Law No. 2499 by Law No. 4487 published in the Official Gazette No. 23910 dated 18 December 1999, the establishment of the Investor Protection Fund and the Central Registry, a corporate entity responsible for the administration of the Investors Protection Fund and dematerialization of securities, are the first steps in the alignment of Turkish legislation with the EU’s investor protection scheme legislation. The Implementing Regulation on the Establishment, Functioning, Operation and Supervision Principles of the Central Registry, the Implementing Regulation on the Procedures and Principles of Gradual Liquidation of Brokerage Houses, and the Implementing Regulation on the Investor Protection Fund were published in the Official Gazette No. 24439 dated 21 June 2001. The Implementing Regulations on the gradual liquidation and investor protection fund entered into force with the establishment of the Central Registry in September 2001. The Central Registry carries out duties for the Investors Protection Fund. It is involved in gradual liquidation of three brokerage houses and payments are made to the clients of the liquidated brokerage houses by the Investor Protection Fund. Although the dematerialization of securities has not yet started, great progress has been achieved in the preparatory projects, including the ones on technical infrastructure.
The minimum public offering rates were increased in accordance with Directive 2001/34/EC through the Communiqué Amending Some of the Articles of the Communiqué on Principles Regarding Registration with the Board and Sale of Shares, published in the Official Gazette No. 25024 dated 18 February 2003. Furthermore, amendments were made in prospectus standards in accordance with Directives 89/298/EEC and 2001/34/EC, and a shelf registration system was introduced after considering the Draft Prospectus Directive. The full harmonisation on prospectus standards will be completed by taking into account the new Prospectus Directive that has been proposed by the Commission. In addition, the sale methods of capital market instruments through public offering were amended in line with the stabilization and distribution principles of the CESR ( Committee of European Securities Regulators). With these amendments, investor groups were defined, and obligations for better informing the public and pro-rata distribution systems introduced.
In order to regulate the individual pension system, which is complementary to the present state social security system on the basis of voluntary participation and defined contributions for providing extra income to the individuals during their retirement period, the Law on Individual Pension Savings and Investment system No. 4632 was published on 7 April 2001 and entered into force on 7 October 2001. The principles regarding the establishment and operation of pension funds, which will be established by pension companies responsible for the management of savings in the individual pension system, are regulated within the framework of the prudentiality principle, through the Implementing Regulation Regarding Establishment and Operations of the Pension Funds, issued by the Capital Markets Board and published in the Official Gazette No. 24681 dated 28 February 2002. The independent auditing of pension funds is regulated by the Communiqué amending the Communiqué on Independent Auditing in the Capital Markets, published in the Official Gazette No. 25024 dated 18 February 2003.
The Communiqué on Investment Advisory Activities and Investment Advisory Companies introducing provisions to cover persons making investment recommendations in the media and by electronic means was published in the Official Gazette No.24734 dated 22 April 2002 . By this regulation, professional journalistic behaviour is separated from personal behaviour for market abuse purposes, similar to the Directive 2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on insider dealing and market manipulation (market abuse).
Through the Communiqué on Principles Regarding Portfolio Management Activities and Portfolio Management Companies published in the Official Gazette No.25000 dated 21 January 2003, in addition to financial institutions, national and foreign real and legal professional persons are allowed to hold shares in portfolio management companies, and the portfolio management companies are obliged to be subject to the capital adequacy requirements, as is the case with brokerage houses.
To strengthen supervisory structures, the Association of Capital Market Intermediary Institutions of Turkey was established as a self-regulatory organization in March 2001. It sets rules of conducts for its members and has the power to enforce regulations for the conduct of business. In addition, the principles for issuing certificates showing the vocational training and vocational adequacy of persons who shall engage in activities on the capital markets has been regulated to enhance the professional capacity of persons providing services. The first licensing certificates were issued in 2002.
The Capital Markets Board, having the status of a public legal entity with administrative and financial autonomy, is the regulatory and supervisory authority in the securities markets within the framework of duties and authorities granted by the Capital Market Law.
Insurance
The efforts for strengthening the regulation and supervision of insurance companies and the harmonisation of insurance legislation with the relevant EC Acquis has been initiated.
To this end, the draft law on Regulation and Supervision of the Insurance Activities, which is prepared in line with the related EC Directives to a great extent and submitted to the Prime Ministry on 2 May 2003, is expected to be enacted by the Turkish Parliament this year. The preparations, for the consequent administrative regulations which will be in line with the EC Directives, continue. The on-going stuides for an implementing regulation relating to the accounting system of insurance companies are expected to be finalized by December 2004. Once the new law is enacted by the Parliament, secondary legislation in line with the relevant EC Directives shall be completed by the end of 2005.
Within this framework, a project, proposed in the context of the 2003 programme of the EU’s Pre-accession Financial Assistance to Turkey, on “Reinforcement of Institutional Capacity of the General Directorate of Insurance (GDI) and the Insurance Supervisory Board (ISB)”, which aim to harmonise Turkish insurance legislation with the relevant EC acquis and ensure its proper implementation, is envisaged to be launched in April 2004. On the other hand, in order to strengthen the functions of insurance regulation and supervision, efforts for new arrangements in the framework of existing institutional setting to restructure the GDI and the ISB continue. Furthermore, being one of the options to restrucure the regulation and supervision function, relevant models of the EU countries related to an independent insurance regulatory and supervisory authority which can effectively operate in Turkey’s conditions, are also being examined.
The Law No. 4632 on Individual Pension Savings and Investment System, introduced for the regulation and supervision of the individual pension system which is complementary to the state social security system by providing extra income to the individuals during their retirement period on the basis of voluntary participation and a fully funded defined contribution, was published 7 April 2001 and entered into force on 7 October 2001. The Implementing Regulation on Principles and Procedures for Operation of the Individual Pension Advisory Board was published on 31 October 2001. Secondary legislation issued by the Undersecretariat of the Treasury regarding the system (Implementing Regulation on Principles of Establishment and Operations of Pension Companies, Implementing Regulation on Individual Pension System, and Implementing Regulation on Individual Pension Intermediaries) were published on 28 February 2002. Communiqué No.2002/1 on Establishment and Operations of Pension Companies was published on 6 April 2002. Communiqué No.2003/1 on Private Pension Plans, Communiqué No.2003/2 on Individual Pension Intermediaries, Circular No.2003/1 on Principles and Procedures for Issuing License Within the Framework of the Implementing Regulation on Principles of Establishment and Operations of Pension Companies, and Circular No. 2003/2 on Principles and Procedures Relating to Information, Documents and Forms Given to the Participants Within the Framework of Implementing Regulation on Individual Pension System were published on 13 May 2003.
Although there is no legal framework within the EU regarding individual pension systems, the legal procedure for the Pension Funds Directive launched with regard to occupational retirement provisions as a part of the Financial Services Action Plan is underway. Although the individual retirement system, introduced by the law No. 4632 and related secondary legislation, concerns individual pension funds on the basis of voluntary participation, it also incorporates the arrangements about the persons who contribute to the accounts of the individuals. Employers may, on behalf of their employees, voluntarily contribute to group pension plans which might be deemed as voluntary occupational pension plans. Within this framework, the regulations on the private pension system brought in rigorous prudential standards relating to surveillance and supervision in order to ensure that pension fund members and beneficiaries are properly protected in line with the Pension Funds Directive.

Banking Sector and Other Financial Institutions
- 94/19/EC: Directive of the European Parliament and the Council of 30 May 1994 on deposit-guarantee schemes
The deposit amount covered by deposit insurance is determined as 50 billion TL, through Decree No 2000/682 on the Saving Deposits Subject to Insurance and the Premium to be Collected for the Savings Deposit Insurance, in line with the minimum level of deposit guarantee of € 20,000 as stipulated by EU norms. However, although not legislatively arranged, the full guarantee application was initiated with an announcement by the 57th Government on 6 December 2000 in order to limit the effects of the crisis encountered in November 2000. The said application will be terminated within a pre-announced schedule provided that stability is ensured within the financial system and the financial indicators. In addition, the Directive differs from the Turkish practice, as it covers all the branches of a credit institution within the EU in terms of deposit gurantee and it stipulates the application of the origin country guarantee system for branches abroad. Accordingly, full harmonisation with this Directive will be completed upon accession.
- 89/117/EEC: Council Directive of 13 February 1989 on the obligations of branches established in a Member State of credit institutions and financial institutions having their head offices outside that Member State regarding the publication of annual accounting documents
According to the commitments in the Letter of Intent submitted to the IMF on 5 April 2003, the regulatory and supervisory power with regard to non-bank financial institutions will be transferred to the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency (BRSA). Related legislative work will be carried out by the BRSA following this transfer.

PRIORITY 3.3 Alignment with the acquis as regards the provision of services in the information society
1- Priority Description
Directive 2000/31/EC considered within the “Freedom to Provide Services” chapter includes provisions regarding the establishment of service providers, commercial communication, electronic contracts, liabilities of intermediary service providers, out of court dispute resolution, court actions, and encouragement for drawing up codes of conduct.
Article 9 of this Directive, known as the Electronic Commerce Directive, is related to contracts concluded by electronic means; Article 12 includes provisions related to the cases where the intermediary service providers are not liable and the provisions regarding the dispute resolution in the courts are given by Article 18 under the title of court’s actions . In this context, Directive 2000/31/EC is submitted to the Committee Responsible for the Preparation of Draft Code of Obligations, especially to be taken into consideration with these aspects. For matters apart from the said Articles, necessary legislative regulations will be prepared by the Undersecreteriat of Foreign Trade in the framework of the acquis related to electronic documents and electronic data.
The subject matter of Directive 98/84/EC on the legal protection of services based on, or consisting of, conditional access is the regulation of measures against illicit devices which allow access to services (through television broadcasting, radio broadcasting and internet) based on conditional access (encoded and fee payed). The issue also covers exports, imports and judicial actions together with the technical matters related to broadcasting and internet. In line with this Directive, the European Convention on the Legal Protection of Services Based on, or Consisting of, Conditional Access prepared by the Council of Europe with ETS No.178 entered into force on 24 January 2001. Although Turkey is not yet a party to the aforementioned Convention, the Convention is expected to be signed by the Council of Ministers in the near future and sent to the TGNA.
Directive 98/34/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council related to the provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations is amended with Directive 98/48/EC. The notification mechanism for national technical regulations and standards on the non-regulated matters regarding goods set by the EU is expanded in order to include notification for technical regulations and standards on similar information society services. In line with this, the title of Directive 98/34/EC was changed to the “Directive related to the provision of information in the field of technical standards, regulations and information society services”.
Harmonisation with Directive 98/34/EC is provided by the “Implementing Regulation on the Notification of the Technical Legislation and Standards between Turkey and European Union,” published in the Official Gazette No. 24714 dated 3 April 2002 and which entered into force on 3 May 2002. It is one of the Implementing Regulations of “Law No.4703 on the Preparation and Implementation of the Technical Legislation for Products” published in the Official Gazette No. 24459 dated 11 July 2001. During this process of harmonisation the provisions of EC-Turkey Association Council Decision No.2/97, which adapt Directive 98/34/EC to Turkey, were taken into consideration.
Since the conditions are not yet clarified for the reflection of the amendment introduced with Directive 98/48/EC to the Implementing Regulation on the Notification of the Technical Legislation and Standards between Turkey and European Union, there is no ongoing legislative work in this context. Negotiations are ongoing with the European Commision within this framework.
Through the Draft Law on Electronic Signature, which is largely based on Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 1999 on a Community Framework for electronic signatures, it is stipulated that an electronic signature, with certain qualifications, has the same legal effect as a hand signature. In the Draft there are also provisions on transactions and contracts where electronic signatures would not apply, and provisions on issues concerning electronic signatures and certification service providers.

4- FREE MOVEMENT OF CAPITAL
The Law on Direct Foreign Investment was published in the Official Gazette No.25141 dated 17 June 2003 and entered into force.

I- LIST OF PRIORITIES
PRIORITY 4.1 Removing all restrictions affecting foreign investments (originating from EU) in all economic sectors in Turkey
PRIORITY 4.2 Removing all restrictions affecting the acquisition of real estate in Turkey by EU citizens and legal persons

II- MEASURES FOR HARMONISATION WITH THE EU LEGISLATION AND IMPLEMENTATION
PRIORITY 4.1 Removing all restrictions affecting foreign investments (originating from the EU) in all economic sectors in Turkey
1- Priority Description
AltThough the alignment of Turkish legislation with the acquis in the field of foreign investments is well advanced, some restrictions still remain. An authorisation system is in place and the minimum capital requirement (per real or legal person) is USD 50,000. There is no limitation in the participation of foreign capital, except in some strategic sectors like civil aviation, maritime transportation, port undertakings, and radio and television.
The new Law on Direct Foreign Investment, abolishing all restrictions deriving from foreign investment legislation (the authorisation procedure and the minimum capital requirement) entered into force with its publication in the Official Gazette No. 25141 on 17 June 2003. The new law will liberalise all restrictions on foreign investments, without prejudice to other laws governing sectors.
Some exceptions are recognised with respect to sectoral restrictions. The Aarticles 27 and 29 of the Tourism Incentive Law No. 2634 and the Yacht Tourism Regulation contain exceptions to the Law No.815 on Maritime Transportation, Cabotage and Harbouring and Performing Crafts and Trade in Turkish Territorial Waters (Law on Cabotage), for private and commercial yachts with a foreign flag, in case where they are used for excursion, sports and amusement. In the same way, articles 3 and 27 of the Tourism Incentive Law No.2634 and article 21 of the Yacht Tourism Regulation allow enterprises established abroad to work in the tourism service sector.
The Law on the Establishment of Radio and Television Enterprises and Their Broadcasts No. 3984, which regulates the radio and television broadcast sector, has contains restrictions concerning foreign capital. The Law No.3984 was amended bythe Law No.4756 published in the Official Gazette No. 24761 dated 21 May 2002 and the Law No.4771 published in the Official Gazette No. 24841 dated 9 August 2002 for the harmonisation with the EU Acquis. In this context, paragraph (h) of the article 29 “Establishment and Ownership Ratio” which, determines the foreign capital ownership in radio and television enterprises was amended to as “The share of foreign capital in one private radio or television enterprise may not exceed 25 percent of the capital paid up”. Previously, This this ratio was limited to with 20% previously.
Acquisition and selling of securities by non-residents is unrestricted according to article 15 of the Decree No.32 Regarding the Protection of the Value of the Turkish Currency.
The removal of obstacles to the admission of foreign securities to the Turkish capital markets and direct investments of foreign financial service providers will facilitate the integration of the Turkish financial sector to the EU.
Upon EU membership Turkish Legislation will be harmonised with the Directive 97/5/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 1997 on cross-border credit transfers upon EU membership.

PRIORITY 4.2 Removing all restrictions affecting the acquisition of real estate in Turkey by EU citizens and legal persons
1- Priority Description
Real estate acquisition of by foreign natural persons in Turkey is regulated by article 35 of the Land Registry Law No. 2644 in accordance with the principle of reciprocity and legal restrictions.
The restrictive legal provisions are the following : article 36 of the Land Registry Law, article 87 of the Village Law No.442 and articles 9/b and 28 of Military Forbidden Zones and Security Areas Law No.2565 and articles 9/2 and 27 of the Military Forbidden Zones and Security Areas Regulation,.
According to article 36 of the Land Registry Law No.2644, the foreign natural person can acquire detached farms that are outside of a village and real estate more than 30 hectares outside of a village only with the government’s authorisation., Legal inheritance is outside of this provision., Acquiring more than 30 hectares of real estate or a farm by means of testament or testamentary heir is also subject to the authorisation of the government., If the authorisation is not given, the farm and the exceeding parts are converted to value by means of liquidation.,
In accordance with article 87 of the Village Law No.442, the real estate acquisition of both foreign natural and legal persons in villages is prohibited.
According to articles 9/b and 28 of the Military Forbidden Zones and Safety Areas Law No. 2565 and the articles of 9/2 and 27 of the Military Forbidden Zones and Safety Areas Regulation, foreigners cannot acquire any real estate that are in military forbidden zones, security areas, and strategic areas. This restriction is valid for all acquisitions.
According to the foreign capital legislation, there is no restriction in acquiring real estate for foreign capital companies, which are established in Turkey.
On the other handWith the Law No. 4916 Amending Various Laws prepared by the Ministry of Finance and adopted by the TGNA the on 3 July 2003, article 35 of the Land Registry Law is amended., According to this amendment, the reciprocity principle for natural persons is conserved. The same reciprocity principle for natural persons will apply to the acquisition of land by non-resident firms, regarding which there were no provisions in the foreign capital legislation.
According to the Law No. 4916, in compliance with the reciprocity principle and legal restrictions, foreign natural persons and foreign firms will be able to acquire real estate in the territory of the Republic of Turkey. In the application of the reciprocity principle, it is essential that foreign states extend the same rights to Turkish citizens or firms as are extended to their own citizens and firms.
Article 35 of the Law No. 4916 abrogates article 87 of the Village Law No.442. Also, as article 18 of the Law No.4916, which re-regulates article 35 of Land Registry Law No.2644 covers provisions of the article 36 of the Land Registry Law No.2644, article 36 is also abrogated.
According to the Law No. 4916, foreign natural persons and foreign trading companies registered in their own countries will have the right to buy and sell real estate of up to 30 hectars in Turkey. If foreign persons and trading companies want to buy real estate over 30 hectars, they have to obtain the authorisation of the Council of Ministers. The Council of Ministers is authorised to specify the areas in which foreign natural persons and foreign trading companies are not allowed to buy, on the grounds of public interest and security. Accordingly, EU citizens and trading companies will be able to buy real estate in Turkey, on a reciprocal basis and in compliance with the legal restrictions.
According to the article 8/e of the Tourism Incentive Law, acquisition of real estate in tourism areas and centres, could be excluded from the restrictions existing in the Village Law No.442 and the Land Registry Law No.2644 on acquisition of real estate by foreign nationals, by the decision of Council of Ministers.
