Turkish enterprises are key players in the process of aligning Turkish legislation with the requirements of EU legislation (also known as the EU acquis), as most of the Turkish legislation adapted to the EU acquis will affect them either directly or indirectly. It is therefore crucial that the Turkish business community is properly informed in a timely way, not only on the relevant legislative changes, but also on the potential opportunities and challenges presented by Turkey’s future accession to the EU.
The Solvency Audit addresses Turkish SMEs that are facing financial and operational difficulties. In line with the previous Audit activities, this activity aims at developing capacity within Turkish Chambers of Commerce and Industry and Commodity Exchanges, in order to provide a first line service to companies that are facing difficulties. This service is based on the existing Early Warning Mechanism, developed for European SMEs.
The Energy Efficiency Audit is being developed as a second “service” in the framework of the TEBD project. The objective of this activity is to develop capacity and knowledge within Turkish Chambers of Commerce and Industry and Commodity Exchanges which will allow them to advise their members on how they can reduce their energy consumption, and thus become more competitive.
