As in all world and France, Covid19 pandemic problems began in Turkey in March and still continue with decreasing affect.
Curfew was imposed until beginning of June and all international flights were suspended until end of May. limited commercial flights to European based countries was started on June 12th in Turkey
Until end of June, the risk of covid19 continued in the e-tugra center location. During this period, the majority of our staff continued to work from home. We ensured that the minimum amount of personnel that would be needed continues to work at the e-tugra center.
Due to these uncertainty of whether transportation, accommodation and physical access, we could not plan to perform the audit, before July 26th.
LSTI tried to do best to organize and to make audits during this process and had trouble planning all of their audits that include e-tugra.
In July, the risk of pandemic began to considerably reduced and LSTI aimed to organize an audit that would be start at August 17th. But due to restriction on auditors' workload, other auditing plans, we could not realize it at August 17th.
Together with the audit firm, we are currently working on the completion of the audit in September. LSTI is also working on the possibility of partial or full remote auditing.
We will inform all parties as soon as new information is available about the dates for the execution of the audit and the preparation of the audit letter
