This quality mark certifies the reliability and quality of Turkish machinery and its technologies.

The mechanism for granting this mark to the manufacturer is not based on a system for the testing and control of only the final product but is also an objective and systematic approach foreseeing that the whole production system of the manufacturer is of a certain qualification and quality.
