KKDIK (aka Turkey REACH) came into force on 23rd of June 2017 and has replaced three existing regulations on chemicals and mixtures with the purpose of regulating the chemical inventory, enforcing secure usage, and risk management on hazardous substances, and promoting alternatives to hazardous substances or procedures.
KKDIK Timeline has 3 main phases:
You can find detailed information on deadlines, exemptions, requirements, and FAQs and you can request a quote for your substances by submitting minimal information from the relevant links in the right menu.
If you are exporting to Turkey, then to stay in business you may need to pre-register your substance(s) before 31st December 2020 within Turkey-REACH (KKDIK).
If you pre-register then you can continue to do business during the 3 year-long registration period (1st Jan 2021 to 31st Dec 2023), with no other major compliance requirements.
If not pre-registered before 31st Dec 2020 Deadline, then no business can be done until you register the substance - which could take several months to a couple of years!

Turkey REACH, which had come into force on June 23rd, 2017, had begun its pre-registration phase starting from the 23rd of December 2017 and the closing date as 31st of December 2020.
From 1st Jan 2021 only those companies who have “Pre-Registered” their substances (under transitional article 1 of KKDIK (Turkey Reach) and article 4.2 of the official guide on registration) would be allowed to place substances in Turkey.
Pre-registration under KKDIK is processed via KKS -the chemical registration system under the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanization’s ECBS portal. The portal can only be accessed by legal and real entities residing in Turkey. Non-Turkey enterprises can appoint a Turkish Legal Entity as an Only Representative (similar to EU REACH) to act on your behalf, to comply with KKDIK.
Pre-registration phase for Turkey REACH is almost complete. If you have any questions regarding pre-registration under KKDIK,
