Turkey REACH Regulatory Compliance – Overview

Many countries like Turkey incorporate complex Regulatory processes for chemicals used in consumer products. The Ministry of Environment, Urbanization, and Climate Change in Turkey is responsible for regulating chemical products.

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

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 registration, or the Turkey REACH registration, has replaced the following 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) with the Turkish MoEU: the deadline was December 31, 2020.
  • KKDIK registration with the Turkish MoEU via the Ministry’s Chemical Registration System (CRS), an online system tool: the deadline was December 31, 2023.
  • C&L inventory notification.
  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS) preparation and distribution.

Exemptions

  • Radioactive substances and mixtures
  • Substances, on their own, in a mixture, or in an article, which are subject to customs supervision if they do not undergo any treatment or processing, and which are in temporary storage, or a free zone or free warehouse with a view to re-exportation, or transit.
