Recent Developments in Turkish E-Commerce Legislation
The Law on Electronic Commerce was amended, and a Regulation on Electronic Commerce Intermediaries and Service Providers was published. It regulates obligations, unfair practices, licenses, and more. The Regulation faced debates and is under review by the Council of State and Constitutional Court. Pending decisions may impact e-commerce companies. If executed, provisions will require ETAHS and ETHS to get licenses, restrict advertising budgets, and prevent certain activities. The aim is fair competition, consumer protection, and preventing aggressive practices. The upcoming decisions will shape Turkish e-commerce legislation.
