Legislative Proposal For Amendment in The Personal Data Protection Law

The proposed law on amendments to the Code of Criminal Procedure and Certain Laws, known as the 8th Judicial Package, which includes important amendments to the Personal Data Protection Law (“KVKK”) is expected to be enacted shortly.

The planned amendments to the KVKK aim to harmonize the Turkish laws with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). With the enactment of the Proposal, important amendments will enter into force in terms of the processing of special categories of personal data, data transfer abroad, administrative sanctions and the ways of appeal against the decisions of the Personal Data Protection Board.
