Following the Board’s Decision, all commercial enterprises affiliated to associations, foundations and unions residing in Turkey and process personal data fit for the purposes of the data processing and restricted to the relevant area of activity; and in compliance with the Turkish Data Protection Laws and Regulations are required to register to the VERBIS. The Board’s Decision has expended the scope of the VERBIS registration requirement to a larger scale of commercial enterprises and require further compliance measures to be taken into consideration.
