KKDIK regulation is a new chemical regulation to be issued by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization(MoEU) in Turkey. "KKDIK" are the first letters of REACH written in Turkish. This regulation requires companies to register all substances manufactured in Turkey or imported into Turkey with volume above 1t/y before a given deadline. This regulation is more similar to EU REACH regulation and may be called real "Turkey REACH" when it is published. 

KKDIK will bring various Turkish chemicals legislation under one law. It will replace three existing laws:

  • Regulation on the Inventory and Control of Chemicals;
  • Regulation on the Preparation and Distribution of Safety Datasheets for Hazardous Materials and Products; and
  • Regulation on the Restrictions Relating to the Production, Supply to the Market and Use of Certain Hazardous Materials, Products and Goods.
