‘’We see that there are mistrust and informality, especially in phone market. We would like to prevent this informality and provide the consumers with reasonably-priced second hand technological products. The new regulation will create a constitutional substructure for ’renewed products’; hence, our consumers will be able to safely sell or buy second hand products and use their rights within the warrantee. ‘’

‘’ At least 12 months warranting will be obligatory.’’

Pekcan stated that within this regulation; used phones and tablets can be renewed at Ministry approved Renovation Centres and put on market again with certification and warrantee. She said:

Renewed products will have ‘renewed product’ inscriptions on their packaging, tag and commercials; also, at least 12 months warranting will be obligatory for these renewed products.’’
