Date given: New period begins in card shopping
The Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency (BDDK) has implemented a new regulation with the aim of reducing the amount of paper used in POS devices.
Within the scope of the regulation, card users who do not want to receive paper slips in card shopping transactions will be able to receive and store these documents digitally.
STARTS DECEMBER 1st
According to the news of Dünya newspaper, the regulation made by the BRSA is valid no later than 1 September 2023 for the transactions made in cases where the card issuing bank and the card processing bank are the same, and at the latest 1 September 2023 for the transactions made in cases where the card issuing bank and the card processing bank are different. It will be implemented in December 2023.
As the use of paper and documents will decrease with the implementation of the regulation, benefits such as reducing service costs, saving time and reducing carbon footprint will be achieved.
The said regulation is also of great importance for the green economy, which aims at sustainable development without harming the environment.
