Turkey REACH Registration Deadline Nears – Act Now to Ensure Compliance

May. 24th, 2023

Stakeholders should step up to complete the chemical registration under KKDIK. Otherwise, the unregistered chemicals won’t be allowed to enter the Turkish market from 1 January 2024.

According to KKDIK*, known as Turkey REACH, chemical substances (on their own or in mixtures or intended to release in articles) manufactured in or imported into Turkey in a quantity of 1 ton or more per year must complete registration before 31 December 2023. To address some issues currently hindering the registration process, the Turkish authority (MoEUCC) simplified certain KKDIK registration requirements in early 2023 (CL news). However, the authority does not plan to extend the KKDIK registration deadline. That’s to say, enterprises that fail to register their chemicals by this deadline may face legal consequences and fines.

*KKDIK is an acronym in Turkish for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. It’s a REACH-like regulation in Turkey.

KKDIK was published by the MoEUCC on 23 June 2017 and came into force on 23 December 2017, aiming to regulate the safe use of chemicals in the Turkey market to ensure sound protection for human health and the environment. It requires manufacturers/importers in Turkey and Only Representatives (OR) in Turkey appointed by oversea suppliers to register their chemicals with the MoEUCC. To conform with KKDIK registration requirements, they are subject to providing comprehensive information on the properties of their chemicals and potential risk or hazards associated with their use. This required information plays a crucial role in identifying substance safety and assessing the need for restrictions or authorizations to safeguard people and the environment.

The process of KKDIK registration may be complex and time-consuming. It is advisable for companies to initiate the preparation of their registration dossiers in a timely manner. Moreover, the support of experts is of great help to ensure that all essential documentation is adequately supplied.

As the deadline for KKDIK registration in Turkey is rapidly approaching, to facilitate industry compliance with chemical registration requirements in Turkey, REACH24H plans to stage a webinar on 8 June 2023, focusing on the current requirements and progress of KKDIK registration, as well as strategies and suggestions on how to smoothly complete the registration work. The webinar is now open for registration. Register now!
