Hello,
Could someone tell me if Turkey needs a EAR? I was told that since Turkey is in customs union with EC, there is no need for EU REP.
Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Not sure what you imply by "Turkey needs a EAR".
Is the manufacturer based in Turkey?
Is the manufacturer based outside the EU and selling in Turkey but in no other EU Member State?

It's always better to provide a few lines of context when starting a new thread, thank you.

The MDR speaks of manufacturers "not established in a Member State" as being required to have an EU AR. As far as I can tell from this page, Turkey is not a Member State of the EU and is currently not progressing quickly in that direction.

Thank you Ronen.

I was in doubt about if Turkey needs an EAR, because despite not being a Member State of the EU, the country is still in the EU Customs union (screenshot below):
