The Minister of Communications and Information Technology recently clarified the deadline for the mandatory registration requirement that applies to electronic systems operators ("ES"). This deadline was first introduced in Minister of Communications and Information Technology ("Ministry") Regulation No. 5 of 2020, as amended by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Regulation No. 10 of 2021 ("Regulation") (click here to read our previous alert on the Regulation). At that time, however, the Ministry did not set a deadline. Now, with the issuance of the Circular Letter of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology No. 3 of 2022 on the Effective Date of Private ESO Registration ("Circular"), the Ministry has set a clear deadline of 20 July 2022.
