The new legislation states that the Coast Guard Command “meets all of its necessities, guns, ammunition etc. from its own budget at the standards set by the Ministry of Interior.” The former phrase “according to the standards of the Naval Forces Command and in line with a plan jointly drawn up with the Naval Forces Command” was removed. however, in cases of military mobilization and war , the Ministry of National Defense meets these needs in line with the standards of the Force Command in charge (Executive Decree 668. Article 29; Executive Decree 674 Article 26). Furthermore, the following phrase was added: “The necessities of the Gendarmerie General Command are communicated by the Ministry of Interior directly to the Ministry of National Defense. These necessities are evaluated by the Ministry of Interior according to its security priorities” (Executive Decree 676 Article 14).
A separate paragraph was added to the same article, stating that the transfer at a charge or no charge of any redundant or non-standard materials belonging to the Coast Guard Command will be carried out according to the Law no. 4645 that regulates the same matters for the General Directorate of Security, and that the rights and benefits enjoyed by the Turkish Armed Forces in this context within the scope of the Law no. 3212 will apply to the gendarmerie as well. (Executive Decree 676 Article 41).
