Extension Of VERBIS Registration Deadlines Doesn't Mean KVKK Is Postponed

VERBIS (Data Controllers' Registry Information System) is a registration system where data controllers are obliged to register and declare their personal data processing activities. According to the announcement made by the Turkish Personal Data Protection Authority in November 2019, it is envisaged that the processes for VERBIS registration will be completed by 30th of June 2020. However, due to the pandemic process that affected the whole world, many companies have adopted the principles of working remotely or part-time, which made it difficult to complete the necessary preparations for the registration. Having considered these issues, the Authority stated that they made the necessary arrangements and announced that the obligation to register with VERBIS has been postponed. You can access the extended deadlines via this link.
