Turkey has implemented GHS with different deadlines set for substances and mixtures. Chemical classification criteria, labelling and SDS requirements are mainly set by the following two regulations:
Both regulations align Turkish SDS and labelling requirements with that of EU REACH & CLP regulation. However, Turkey has set its own additional requirements on SDSs and labels.
Please note an expert holding a current certificate cannot prepare new SDSs before he/she receives new accreditations.
If a hazardous substance needs to be hidden on labels or in SDSs for confidentiality reasons, companies shall submit a request to MoEU to obtain an approval of using an alternative name. Such an alternative name can only be used for 6 years. Certain conditions have to be met first.
