MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT AND FORESTRY IN TURKEY zIn practice responsibilities for the implementation and enforcement of environmental legislation is spread among a number of institutions at national, provincial and local (municipality) level. zThe MoEF plays a crucial role in monitoring and control of activities that have environmental impacts, together with other Ministries and Governmental Institutions like State Hydraulic Works (DSI), Ministry of Health, Municipalities, etc.

ENVIRONMENTAL INSPECTIONS zTurkey has an Integrated Environmental Inspection System. zThe Environmental Inspection Regulation has been issued in 2002 and afterwards an inspection department has been established in MoEF. zSince 2003, integrated environmental inspections, which are very in accordance with the Minimum Criteria of IMPEL, are implemented all over the country by the inspection department. zAlso media based inspections are implemented by the provincial directorates of MoEF.
