As our readers may recall from our earlier coverage of the data controllers’ registry, Data Protection Board (“DPB”), with its decision numbered 2018/88 (“Decision”), had previously determined the timeline for data controllers’ obligation to register with the data controllers’ registry system, “VERBIS”. According to the DPB’s Decision, registration obligations for the data controllers below have started on 01.10.2018:
- Natural and legal person data controllers who have more than 50 employees annually or more than 25,000,000 Turkish Liras (c. EUR 3,500,000) total annual balance,
- Natural and legal person data controllers residing abroad.
The Decision determines the prescribed period for the registration of such data controllers with VERBIS as 12 months. Therefore, registration for the abovementioned controllers must be completed before the deadline of 30.09.2019. You may find further details of the registration obligations in our article here, and please do not hesitate to contact our data protection team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions you might have regarding the Data Protection Law.
