Turkey - Regulatory Services


KKDIK (also known as Turkey REACH) was enforced on 23 December 2017. The regulation applies to chemical substances (on their own, in mixtures or in articles) and requires that companies register all substances manufactured in or imported into Turkey with volumes ≥1t/y. With the three-year pre-registration period expiring in December 2020, a registration phase starts in January 2021 for another three years ending in December 2023. Turkey REACH does not make provisions for any specific deadlines for different tonnage bands.

Companies based outside of Turkey may appoint Turkey-based Only Representatives (OR) to 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.
