Turkey KKDIK: What are the key requirements?

Turkey’s new KKDIK regulation has come into force on 23 December 2017 and replaced the “Regulation on the Inventory and Control of Chemicals (CICR)”, “Regulation on the Preparation and Distribution of Safety Datasheets for Hazardous Materials and Products”, and the “Regulation on the Restrictions Relating to the Production, Supply to the Market and Use of Certain Hazardous Materials, Products and Goods”.

The regulation has many similarities with the EU REACH regulation. Substances manufactured and imported at or above 1 tonne/year in Turkey must be pre-registered and registered before set deadlines. There are also specific requirements for downstream users and obligations for substances identified as being subject to authorisation and restriction.
