Turkey Officially Announced to Extend the KKDIK Registration Deadlines

from CIRS by


On December 23, 2023, Turkey officially announced to extend the KKDIK registration deadline of December 31, 2023, by up to seven years, between 2026 and 2030 depending on the tonnage band and the hazard classification. Earlier in November, a draft text proposed to gradually extend the KKDIK registration deadlines was submitted to the NGO.

According to the revised Regulation, the registration deadlines are revised as following:

(1) Substances meet the following conditions shall be registered before December 31, 2026;

  • Substances manufactured or imported in quantities1,000 tpa;
  • Substances manufactured or imported in quantities≥100 tpa and substances classified as Aquatic Acute 1 and/or Aquatic Chronic 1 (H400, H410); and
  • Substances manufactured or imported in quantities ≥1 tpa and substances are classified as Category 1A or 1B of carcinogenicity, mutagenicity and/or toxic to the reproductive system, in accordance with the Regulation on Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures.

(2) Without prejudice to the deadline given in paragraph (a), substances manufactured or imported in quantities≥100 tpa shall be registered before December 31, 2028.

(3) Without prejudice to the periods given in paragraphs (a) and (b), substances manufactured or imported in quantities ≥1 t/y shall be registered before December 31, 2030.

The Authorisation list, the candidate list, and the assessment list shall commence from 31 December 2026.

Under Turkey KKDIK, many substances are not registered because entities do not have a lead registrant (LR) or LR does not complete substance registration within the original deadline, which may prevent enterprises from exporting their chemical products to Turkey. The extension of the registration deadline indeed reduces registration costs and alleviates pressures on companies. Companies can conduct relevant activities with pre-registration numbers before the deadline. Enterprises without a pre-registration number may apply for pre-registration through OR or importers in Turkey.
