Turkish REACH-like law KKDIK will come into effect on December 23, 2017

The Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation (MoEU) has published its new chemical control legislation KKDIK in the Official Gazette No. 30105 of 23 June 2017. The new legislation is closely harmonized with EU REACH and will become effective as of 23 December 2017.

KKDIK has long been awaited and is replacing three existing regulations. Companies are now required to register substances manufactured in or imported into Turkey with volumes of at least 1 ton per year.

The Registration deadline is set for 31 December 2023 and the Pre-registration deadline is on 31 December 2020.

Dr. Dieter Drohmann, Managing Director of CHEMSERVICE, will give a lecture on KKDIK at the Lexxion seminar on International Chemical Law held on 28 September 2017 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. More information is available at:
