TASFED TURNED UP FOR MINIMUM MAINTENANCE PRICE
The Turkish Elevator Industrialists' Federation (TASFED), which came together for the first meeting of 2022, determined the road map of the new-year. Taking action on the inconsistency in maintenance prices, which is frequently brought up by the elevator industry, TASFED decided to prepare a minimum maintenance schedule. The minimum maintenance price tariff to be prepared will be distributed to industry stakeholders as "advice" through TASFED member associations.
YUSUF ATİK: “WE ARE WAITING FOR THE INTERVENTION OF THE MINISTRY OF INDUSTRY AFTER 2023 GENERAL ELECTIONS”
Emphasizing that he often goes for a visit to the Ministry of Industry and Technology, TASFED Chairman Yusuf Atik underlined that he conveyed his request to determine a minimum maintenance price during his meetings. Atik has announced that they will prepare an advisory maintenance price schedule and submit it to the information of the industry. Underlining that it will be difficult to reach consistent figures in price policy unless there is an official sanction, Atik said that he predicts that the Ministry of Industry and Technology will take steps in this regard after the Turkish general elections and the presidential elections, which are planned to be held in June 2023.
ZAFER KARABAY: “THE PRICE STUDY TO BE CARRIED OUT UNDER THE ROOF OF FEDERATION SHALL BE MORE EFFECTIVE"
TASFED Board Member Zafer Karabay said that they prepare an advisory price list every year in the Anatolian Elevator Association, of which he is a member; “Usually the public side does not ignore this work. I guess that other associations are in progress of similar studies. Of course, it would be more logical and effective to do this under the roof of TASFED.”
ATTORNEY OF TASFED LAWYER ERDEM SERDAR VURGUN: "USERS CAN UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WILL RECEIVE MISSING SERVICE"
Stating that there is no legal problem in publishing the advisory maintenance price, TASFED Deputy Attorney Erdem Serdar Vurgun said, “The costs required for a maintenance that fully complies with the regulation will be the same for each company. Maybe elevator users who have been serviced over time will know that they will receive incomplete service below a certain cost. In the future, the Ministry of Industry and Technology may pave the way for this work to be regulated".
“THIS INFRASTRUCTURE AND MEASURABILITY CAN AVOID UNFAIR COMPETITION”
TASFED Vice President Mustafa Uçar emphasized that infrastructure preparation and measurability should be ensured in the maintenance procedure. Uçar said, “We can equalize the quality of maintenance services in every company. We need to measure between companies that have completed their restructuring and newly established companies. If we can create a maintenance checklist plan, we will ensure that everyone does the same maintenance. In this way, we prevent unfair competition”.
