New rules for the export of chemicals to Turkey

DEKRA assists with Turkey REACH

19. Mar 2020

According to the Turkish chemicals regulation KKDIK, the pre-registration phase ends on December, 31 2020. All substances that are placed on the market in volumes of 1 metric ton per year have to be pre-registered at the authority. Exporters of chemical products will have to disclose the formulation to their trade partners. As an alternative, they could appoint an only representative to fulfill the obligations under KKDIK for their products. DEKRA now has established this service, jointly with their longtime partner ONAY.

The Turkish regulation on “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, Restriction of Chemicals” (KKDIK) was published on June 23, 2017 in the Turkish Official Journal. It is the Turkish equivalent of the EU REACH regulation and stipulates that Turkish manufacturers and importers have to register substances in quantities of more than 1 metric ton per year. As a first step, companies must pre-register the substances concerned by December 31, 2020.

As a result, just as under EU REACH, the substance information exchange forums (SIEFs) are formed to enable the study data to be shared. Registration dossiers must be submitted by December 31, 2023. However, essential parts of the dossier have to be prepared by a certified chemical assessment expert.

Companies not wanting to disclose their recipes to their Turkish importers can hire an only representative to register their products. DEKRA has been working with the Istanbul-based expert office ONAY since 2010. Since then, companies have been supported in the implementation of various chemical law regulations in Turkey such as CICR, SEA or the creation of Turkish safety data sheets.

At the same time, DEKRA has supported numerous companies in implementing EU REACH (EU Regulation No. 1907/2006) since 2008. The respective wealth of experience is now bundled and combined in a customized service package for KKDIK.
