Through our office in Istanbul, REACHLaw is helping considerable number of Turkish companies and companies located outside Turkey to comply with KKDIK, SEA and GBF regulatory requirements. Since the year 2011, we have provided to the companies Only Representative services but have also helped Turkish companies as their service provider!
KKDIK is now in force!
The “KKDIK Regulation” of June 23rd, 2017 (Regulation No. 30105) sets up a system for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals in the Turkish market. Therefore, from 23rd of December 2017 manufacturing and importing companies of chemical substances as such or as part of mixtures or articles, in quantities equal to or above 1 tonne per year, can start pre-registering their substances to the MoEU in Turkey.
Under KKDIK there are not staggered deadlines above 1 tonne per year and substances are required to be pre-registered by the 31st of December 2020 and registered by the 31st of December 2023. Please note that only trained and qualified experts can sign off registrations to be submitted via a Turkish entity, therefore companies located outside Turkey can appoint REACHLaw as their Only Representative for this purpose.
Furthermore, the Turkish regulation on Preparation and Issue of Safety Data Sheets for Dangerous Substances and Mixtures, “GBF Regulation”, of December 13th, 2014 (Regulation No. 29204) requires companies to prepare compliant SDSs in Turkish language by a certified expert (in Turkey) and submit them to the MoEU. The safety information must be notified in Turkish language to the MoEU.
Likewise, the Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging, “SEA Regulation”, of December 11th, 2013 (Regulation No. 28848) requires classification and labelling notifications for hazardous substances placed on the Turkish market regardless of their tonnage band. To comply with the SEA regulation, substance specific environmental, health and safety information of the substance must be submitted to the MoEU in Turkish language via a Turkish entity.
To manufacture and/or place chemicals on the Turkish market, companies must comply with these Regulations, either through their companies located in Turkey or through established Only Representatives also located in Turkey.
Via our Istanbul office, REACHLaw is happy to provide you with a full set of regulatory services to ensure compliance in your business with Turkey Regulations: KKDIK, SEA and GBF as your Only Representative or as your service provider!
