What is a Turkey REACH Pre Registration?
The Turkey’s REACH based KKDIK Regulation was published on June 23, 2017 and came into force on December 23rd, 2017. All companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances on their own or in mixtures as well as in articles in Turkey must submit a KKDIK pre-registration to the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization (MoEU).
The first step of the registration for all potential registrants, downstream users and third parties of substances is to submit pre-substance information exchange forum (pre-SIEF) to the MoEU via the KKS Tool (Chemical Registration System Tool) till 31 December, 2020.

- b) Agree classification and labelling where there is a difference in the classification and labelling of the substance between potential registrants.
(3) SIEF participants shall provide other participants with existing studies, react to requests by other participants for information, collectively identify needs for further studies for the purposes of paragraph 2(a) and arrange for such studies to be carried out.
