Turkish data localization rules in effect for social media companies

On Oct. 1, 2020, amendments to the Regulation of Internet Broadcasts and Prevention of Crimes Committed through Such Broadcasts (Law No. 5651), also known as the Social Media Law in Turkey, entered into force.

The amendments define the term “social network provider,” oblige them to appoint a local representative, set out procedures for content removal, request reports every six months, and require user data to be stored within Turkey.
