TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu, said in a statement on the subject, through the cooperation of TOBB and the Ministry of Commerce General Directorate of Domestic Trade, e-transformation project for announcements sent to the Gazette Directorate electronically has been launched. With the project, the registration of the announcement carried out in MERSIS is transferred electronically to the Gazette Directorate and published within two hours at the latest.

In this context, Hisarcıklıoğlu noted that the application was commissioned in Ankara Chamber of Commerce, which was chosen as the Pilot Chamber as of July 1, 2020, “Within the scope of the project, which is underway, 300 commercial record directorates of 124 chambers were trained and implemented in our chambers participating in the application training. With the application, the need for transactions to happen quickly in trade has been met. Approximately 7,500 advertisements have been transferred to our Union electronically as of July 1, 2020, when the application was commissioned. We started to receive over 1,000 advertisements electronically on a daily basis.”

Hisarcıklıoğlu emphasized that they have declared 2020 as the year of digital transformation for the Turkish Trade Registry Gazette, and that the software infrastructure of the newspaper has been renewed, that the website has been updated, that it can be accessed via the e-government gate or via e-signature. Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that announcements published in the Turkish Trade Registry Gazette, focus on the ease of use of readers with color coded titles of the announcements and the new publication management system, and that, as opposed to hardcopy announcements which were published in the Gazette in 2 days, announcements are published in the following day.
