KKDIK – Türkiye REACH
KKDIK (also known as Türkiye 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 Türkiye with volumes ≥1t/y.
After the pre-registration period had expired in December 2020, the registration phase for all tonnage bands began in January 2021 and was initially planned to be completed by 31 December 2023. Due to considerable difficulties faced by the chemical industry in meeting the new requirements within the prescribed period, Türkiye’s Ministry of Urbanisation and Climate Change (MoEUCC) confirmed their plans to postpone the deadlines by releasing a draft regulation on 14 November 2023 with the new deadline proposals as follows:
||31 December 2026|
||31 December 2028|
||31 December 2030|
The new registration schedule still needs to be confirmed by the official revision in the next weeks.
Companies based outside of Türkiye may appoint Türkiye-based Only Representatives (OR) to register substances on their behalf. The most striking difference to the EU REACH is that chemical safety reports (CSRs) must be generated by a locally certified expert under KKDIK.
