Frequently Asked Questions

As per the Official Guideline on Registration Heading 2.5.1 in KKDIK, the ingredients in the finished cosmetic products also need to be registered, as cosmetic products can be defined under the term "mixture" and ingredients of a mixture must be registered according to KKDIK.


Although cosmetics are covered by the Bylaw on Cosmetics (separate regulation on cosmetics in Turkey), they are not exempted from registration i.e., the ingredients of the finished products also need to be registered even if it's a finished product intended for the end-user. 

However under KKDIK, cosmetic products that are delivered to the end-user as a final product are exempt from Safety Data Sheet requirements (KKDIK Article 2(4)(b)) and if a Chemical Safety Report is needed to be prepared for the product, the report does not have to have a "human health" section as it must be already covered by the aforementioned Bylaw on Cosmetics. 


In principle the exporter of the finished cosmetics product has a compliance liability for both these regulations in Turkey (KKDIK and Bylaws on Cometic regulations).

The main chemical regulation in Turkey is KKDIK, which is an acronym in the Turkish language for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. KKDIK is also known as Turkey-REACH.

  • Kimyasalların  (Chemicals)
  • Kaydı (Registration)
  • Değerlendirilmesi (Evaluation)
  • İzni (Authorization)
  • Kısıtlanması(Restriction)

Turkey-REACH Regulation came into force to improve and arrange previous legal regulation related to chemicals. The Ministry of Environment and Urbanization (MoEU) manages registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction processes of the chemicals to provide to be adapted to Turkey-REACH Regulation.

  • Turkey-REACH Regulation and the other related regulation can be found in helpdesk of the MoEU. Turkish)
  • Guide documents of the can be found at

Under Turkey-REACH, chemicals can be registered with following tonnage bands:

  • 1-10 tons/ year
  • 10-100 tons/ year
  • 100-1000 tons/ year
  • 1000+ tons/ year

In case the substance qualifies as an intermediate, the applicable tonnage bands for registration as a transported isolated intermediate (TII) are: 

  • <1000 tons/ year 
  • >1000 tons/ year

Turkey REACH (KKDIK) regulates manufacturing, placing on the market or use of chemicals and chemicals in a mixture or in an article.

Enterprises have the obligation to comply with the KKDIK regulation via pre-registration and registration.

  • The pre-registration and registration are applicable to all substances (regardless of the phase-in and non-phase-in status in the Turkey inventory.)
  • Substances registered within EU-REACH need to be registered again under KKDIK.

The following substances are exempted from Turkey REACH: 

  • Radioactive substances and mixtures
  • Substances, on their own, in a mixture or in an article, which are subject to customs supervision, provided that they do not undergo any treatment or processing, and which are in temporary storage, or in a free zone or free warehouse with a view to re- exportation, or in transit;
  • Non-isolated intermediates;
  • The carriage of hazardous substances and hazardous mixtures by rail, road, inland waterway, sea or air;
  • Wastes
  • Substances and mixtures which are manufactured or imported for the purpose of defense

  • The deadline for Pre-registration under the KKDIK is 31 December 2020. Substance registration will start from 1 January 2021 and end in 31 December 2023. Companies that submit the pre-registration before 31 December 2020 can continue to manufacture or export while registration is in process. Tonnage band will not affect the registration deadlines.  

    However, companies that fail to pre-register can manufacture or export the substances only after the registration is completed.  

  • Turkish Manufacturers
  • Turkish Importers
  • Non-Turkish manufacturers can appoint an “Only Representative (OR)” to register on behalf of them, also taking over the registration responsibility from the importer.

Companies can pre-register the substances by filling the pre-SIEF.
