The Turkish MoEU has passed a regulation that addresses the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals, known as KKDIK. This law combines three existing pieces of Turkish legislation regarding chemicals: the Regulation on the Inventory and Control of Chemicals; the 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. Under the new law, industry will be required to register chemicals by end of year 2023. The KKDIK law is similar to the EU’s REACH law, with the one notable exception being that the only persons authorized to sign off on registrations and notifications are trained and qualified experts.
