KKDIK – Turkey REACH

KKDIK is the new chemicals regulation in Turkey that harmonises with the EU’s REACH provisions. KKDIK has been in force since 23 December 2017. It applies to chemical substances (on their own, in mixtures or in articles) and requires that companies register all substances manufactured in Turkey or imported into Turkey with volumes >=1t/y. Substances can be pre-registered during a three-year period from 23 December 2017 until the end of December 2020. This will be immediately followed by a three-year registration phase (until the end of December 2023), without specific deadlines for tonnage bands.

Companies based outside of Turkey may appoint Turkey-based Only Representatives (OR) to pre-register and register substances on their behalf. The most striking difference to the EU’s REACH is that chemical safety reports (CSRs) must be generated by a locally certified expert under KKDIK.

After one and a half years have passed since the United Kingdom declared its intention to leave the European Union, there is still much uncertainty in the air about Brexit and its scenarios. It is completely open whether there will be Brexit with transition phase of 21 months (March 2019 - December 2020) or not, since a transition phase will only be accepted if a comprehensive withdrawal agreement is in place.
Michel Barnier, the Chief Negotiator of the EU, recently asked companies in the EU to accelerate their preparations for the Brexit, be it a structured or unstructured exit. He encouraged industry to ensure that its value chains between the EU and the UK are made Brexit-safe. The UK government, in its turn, has started to publish no-deal EU withdrawal guidance for the chemical industry. Read more here.

Who/what is concerned?

EU REACH registrations:

  • Solution for substances that were REACH registered by UK-based Only Representatives (OR) - transfer the OR role to SCC!
    No worries, OR transfers are “business as usual” for SCC and therefore can be done cost-effectively!
  • Solution for UK importer or manufacturer registrations – registration e.g. by SCC as OR or by an EU importer / downstream user supported by SCC.
    Rely on us, SCC has nearly one decade of experience in this field of REACH registration!

Substances marketed in the UK:

  • Solution for such substances that need to be registered according to new regulation (under preparation) in the UK for continued supply - UK registration via SCC in collaboration with its experienced UK-based partner consultant!
  • Judging from our experience,  project costs and agency fees should be in a similar range as for generation and submission of an EU Member dossier for REACH.

We have no laboratories of our own and are thus free to contract all necessary studies out to the laboratories best suited to meet your regulatory needs. Through partnerships with international CLP-certified laboratories we can offer you high-quality studies with independent monitoring by SCC at favourable conditions.

We monitor the performance of the studies (study monitoring) to guarantee full compliance with regulatory and scientific requirements and standards. We can also support your in-house laboratory with respect to study planning, monitoring and reporting.

Planning and monitoring studies on physico-chemical properties, analytical methods (method development and validation), toxicology, residues as well as environmental fate and ecotoxicology are done on a routine basis.

In addition, we have a wealth of experience in designing, monitoring and evaluating non-standard studies in the chemicals sector, such as toxicokinetic and dermal-absorption studies as well as workplace exposure studies / operator exposure studies.

Study monitoring is usually part of a registration process; however, it can also be done as a stand-alone project.

Consortia management and SIEF work is still required after the last REACH phase-in deadline of May 2018.

In your role as lead registrant for a substance you may need to lead and run a SIEF or consortium, but lack the experience or the resources to do so well. We are experienced in efficiently managing consortia and SIEFs on behalf of our customers and have enjoyed high industry trust for many years.

Our spectrum of services ranges from setting up consortia/SIEFs and handling trust accounts to data collection and archiving, and handling confidentiality and data compensation issues. We can also represent clients in consortia and SIEFs managed by a third party and cover all technical, scientific and regulatory aspects.

New members may wish to join the SIEF or consortium, LoAs may need to be calculated and issued or the cost shares for new studies performed on request by ECHA may need to be calculated. Since SIEFs and consortia must remain operational, it is essential that they have their contracts checked for validity after the registration deadline of May 2018. Let us handle the entire consortia and SIEF management for you. We have the expertise you need.
