TR Reach

The Turkey REACH Regulation, known as KKDIK (Turkish acronym for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) was published on June 23, 2017 by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization (MoEU) and entered into force on December 23, 2017. Similar to EU-REACH, KKDIK requires pre-registration and registration for substances that are manufactured or placed on the market in quantities greater than 1tpa, either on their own or in mixtures, or in articles with an intended release. In contrast with EU REACH, KKDIK does not set out separate pre-registration and registration deadlines depending on the classification of the substance or the annual tonnage band. The pre-registration period will start late 2018, registration is required between 2021 and 31st December 2023 for all substances and all tonnage bands > 1tpa.
