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.
