ICTA

Policymaking, regulation and operation functions are separated by the Law No 4502 dated 27.01.2000, amending the Laws No 406 and 2813, which are the basic laws of telecommunications sector. While policy making is the responsibility of Ministry of Transportation, Maritime Affairs and Communications, regulation function is given to Telecommunications Authority. Telecommunications Authority, established in 2000, is the first sectoral regulatory body of Turkey. The Authority is 102nd compared to similar authorities in the world.


To remove the legislative untidiness, create competition in the sector, lessen the uncertainties for operators and allocate resources to R&D, Electronic Communications Law has come into force on 10 November 2008 and the name of the Authority has changed to Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA).
