KKDIK regulation now moving into registration phase: important updates on the Lead Registrant selection

Date: 23 February 2021

With the end of the pre-registration phase for KKDIK (‘Turkey REACH’) on 31 December 2020, full attention has now shifted to the actual registration phase, a 3-year window until 31 December 2023.

The Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanization (MoEU) recently published a number of updates to inform all actors in the supply chains on important details for the next phase.

Companies that consider becoming Lead Registrant (LR) for a pre-registered substance should clarify their intention soon and be ready to communicate their position with other SIEF members in the coming weeks. The Lead Registrant selection process has started and Lead Registrant candidates need to approach the other SIEF members for acceptance of the LR role. While LR voting is not compulsory, a voting module will be integrated on the SIEF page for the selection of the Lead Registrant in case of SIEF disagreement. The declarations for the Lead Registrant will start on 1 March 2021, simultaneously with the integration of the voting module in the KKS system.
