Supporting your compliance under KKDIK and CICR

Following the European Union’s lead, Turkey published its implementation of REACH (KKDIK) in the Official Gazette on the date 23 June 2017. KKDIK repealed and replaced CICR (Chemical Inventory and Control Regulation 27092).

Like EU-REACH, KKDIK requires pre-registration and registration for substances that are manufactured or placed on the market in Turkey in quantities greater than 1t/y, either on their own or in mixtures, or in articles with an intended release.

Key deadlines:

  • Pre-registration by 31 December 2020
  • Registration by 31 December 2023
  • Phase-in implementation of the entries on the “Restrictions” list (Annex XVII)
  • 31 Dec 2017 – all entries not mentioned below
    • 31 December, 2018 - Entries 28-38, 40-41, 45, 48-49, 54-55, 57-58 and 60
    • 31 December, 2019 - Entry 62
    • 31 December, 2021 - Entry 46a, Entry 47 (paragraphs 1-4) and Entry 65
    • 31 December, 2022 - Entry 66

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.

That means the deadline for registration is tighter than it was for EU REACH, making it important to choose the right partner.
