Turkey has introduced a new database called the Electronic
Communication Infrastructure Information System
("System"), as well as related
regulatory requirements for data entry, data auditing, and
electronic communication infrastructure. The related Regulation
applies to companies which are authorized to provide electronic
communication services, networks, or operate related
infrastructure. Companies must record their infrastructure, network
and service information to the System, as well as ensure the
information is accurate and current.
The Information and Communication Technologies Authority
("Authority") published the Regulation
on Infrastructure and Information Systems of Electronic
Communication ("Regulation") in Official
Gazette number 29769 on 13 July 2016, effective three months after
Companies exercising rights to lay cables (through public or
private property) and networks established for fixed and mobile
lines must also comply with Authority's Reference Document for
Electronic Communication Infrastructure Facilities.
The Authority can audit the accuracy of data, as well as
companies' compliance with the Reference Document for
Electronic Communication Infrastructure Facilities. At the
Authority's request, companies must enable remote access to
their information systems.
Administrative sanctions apply for violations of the Regulation,
according to the Regulation on Information and Communication
Technologies Authority Administrative Sanctions published in the
Official Gazette no. 28914 date 15 February 2014.
The Authority is empowered to issue secondary legislation
regarding the System.
