If there is no signature record in the databases of public institutions and organizations, the procedures and principles of submitting the signature declarations of the authorized signatories to the trade registry directorate will be determined by the Communiqué to be issued by the Ministry of Trade.
- The trade registry records will be taken as a basis by public institutions and organizations regarding the authorized representatives registered with the trade registry and their representation methods. No documents regarding those records will be requested from the company other than the documents issued by the trade registry and the announcement published in the Turkish Trade Registry Gazette.
- The Law enters into force on the date of its publication.You may find the Turkish version of the Law here.
