Turkey REACH Regulatory Compliance

Overview

Overview

Many countries like Turkey incorporate complex Regulatory processes for chemicals used in consumer products. The Ministry of Environmental and Urbanization (MoEU) is responsible for regulating chemical products in Turkey.

The Turkey REACH regulation is similar to the EU REACH regulation with respect to its provisions. “KKDIK” is an acronym in Turkish for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals.

Chemical manufacturers and the associated supply chain must comply with the KKDIK registration requirements to support their business continuity. Regulatory actions should be taken as per the involved deadlines.

KKDIK, or Turkey REACH, has replaced the below regulations:

  • The Inventory and Control of Chemical Regulation
  • Regulation on Restrictions for the Manufacture, Marketing, and Use of Certain Dangerous Substances and Preparations
  • Regulation on Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Substances and Mixtures

Regulatory Obligations:

  • Pre-registration (Pre-SIEF) to the Turkish MoEU: December 31, 2020, was the deadline
  • KKDIK registration to the Turkish MoEU via the Ministry’s Chemical Registration System (CRS), an online system tool: December 31, 2023, is the deadline
  • C&L inventory notification
  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS) preparation and distribution

Exemptions:

  • Radioactive substances and mixtures
