TURKREACH KKDIK Only Representative


TURKREACH requires all companies manufacturing or placing a substance on Turkish market in quantities greater than 1t/year to register that substance with the Ministry of Enironment and Urbanisation (MoEU).


For legal reasons, only companies with a legal entity in Turkey are allowed to submit a registration; however, non-TR companies may submit registration by appointing a TR-based Only Representative to register on their behalf, in which case their importers will be regarded as downstream users and do not need to do registrations.

Our TURKREACH only representative service costs per substance per year are changes depending on the number of substances. If you are looking for a cost-effective  "Only Representative" or wish to change only representative, please don't hesitate to contact us for further advice.

Benefits of Appointing TURKREACH Only Representative (OR)


  • Relieve importers of their obligations to register and obtain continued market access in the TR (many TR importers will try to avoid registrations by purchasing TURKREACH registered chemicals);

  • Avoid dependence on a single importer and keep market access should one TR importer cease trading;

  • Gain advantages over other non-TR suppliers who do not appoint OR to register their substances;

Note: Importers will be exempt from TURKREACH registration if their non-TR suppliers have registered; however, importers need to confirm with their suppliers' Only Representative that they are included in the inventory of importers and their tonnage and uses are covered by the OR. This can be done by asking for TURKREACH Certificate of Compliance from the only representative of their suppliers before they put chemicals on the TR market.
