Agreement between experts
In case of failure to come to
an agreement, a 3rd expert is
appointed via EKSİST. The 3rd
expert prepares the report and the
fee is shared by the parties
previous circular may be outlined as follows:
Options were added for the insurant to appoint the
expert freely or randomly in the beginning of the expert
The assessment period of the expert appointment request
was increased from 2 hours to 3 business days.
If no notifications were made by the expert on behalf of
accepting or rejecting, it is assumed that the job was
accepted by the expert.
By these changes, general flow of the EKSİST system was
established as follows.
I hope the trust in insurance, the main problem of insurance
industry, further strengthens with this application. In this
application, all stakeholders of the industry will stay in very
close contact with each other. It can be possible to meet
on a common goal in respect of the insurants' seeking their
rights, the experts' represent independence of the "expertise
institution" in the best way, and the insurance companies'
having to examine the events in more detail in their struggle
My wish is that the insurants, experts and insurance
companies do not fall into too much disputes in respect of
the appointments within the system, and not much duty
falls on dispute experts.
Finally, an Insurance Expert filed a lawsuit for stay of the
execution before the Supreme Court of Appeals. The
Supreme Court of Appeals awarded the decree of stay
of the execution on the ground that several articles of
the circular were not in conformity with article 22 of the
Insurance Law No. 5684.
Main reasons of the decree of stay of the execution can be
The experts are appointed randomly by the system (they
should be appointed freely according to the law).
The expert has to notify whether he/she accepts or
rejects the appointment request within 2 hours (this
period is 3 days according to the law).
The expert is deemed to have rejected if he/she does not
reply the appointment request in due time (according to
the law, the expert is deemed to have accepted if he/she
does not notify a reply).
After the resolution of annulment, Undersecretariat of Trea-
sure published a circular dated 29 April and No. 2013/7,
and the NEW EKSİST entered into force again as of 13 May
By the circular of the Undersecretariat of Treasury dated 29
April and No. 2013/7, the contradictions with the law were
revised. The steps differing between this circular and the
