Submission of Suspicious Transaction Reports Electronically

Through Article 28 of the Regulation on Measures Regarding Prevention of Laundering Proceeds of Crime and Financing of Terrorism the Ministry of Finance has been authorized to determine, separately for each obliged party, principles and procedures of making it obligatory to report suspicious transactions by using electronic and IT means, and using electronic signature in suspicious transaction reports. In accordance with the same article MASAK may prepare guidelines for submitting reports electronically and the guidelines might be published in electronic form. Reports shall be made in accordance with these guidelines.

Based on mentioned arrangements, it has been approved that STRs from banks (excluding Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, development and investment banks) shall be initially submitted by compliance officers through using electronic means or IT tools.
