The number of Turkish institutions authorised to train chemical assessment experts under the country’s KKDIK law has risen to eight, according to the Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation (MoEU).
As part of the REACH-like law, Turkey requires such professionals – KDUs in Turkish – to be trained and accredited by government-approved agencies before they can sign chemical safety reports (CSRs).
KKDIK has an extra annex – Annex 18 – specifying the qualifications necessary to become a KDU. They must undergo at least 64 hours of face-to-face training and pass an exam before they can be issued with a certificate from an accredited organisation.
All companies doing business in the chemicals industry in Turkey, including foreign multinationals, must employ trained KDUs.
