Compliance with the Turkish REACH By-Law "KKDIK"

Dear KKDIK Registrant,

Compliance with the Turkish REACH By-Law KKDIK regulation is mandatory for any company with the aim to continue selling chemical substances in Turkey (TR). Companies located outside the TR need to have an Only Representative (OR) in Turkey in order to be able to register their substances as known.

We, as DORUKSISTEM, can offer Only Representative (OR) service and regulatory monitoring service for companies exporting chemical substances to Turkey. Our Only Representative services allow Non- TR companies to take part in the Turkish REACH KKDIK registration process. We act as their OR carrying out all the CLP and Pre-SIEF registrations (known as pre-registration) and registration work needed to submit a successful registration dossier to MoEU. In addition, we provide a long-term legal presence, client representation and carry out all the mandatory continuous data collection tasks required. As OR, we take care of the substance identification, best registration strategy, a thorough evaluation of existing data, the identification of data gaps and a precisely fitting proposal of testing strategies with due regard to scientific as well as economic aspects in order to close these gaps.

We assist our clients with a complete Chemical Safety Report prepared by the certified ‘Chemical Assessment Specialists (CAS)’ (Compliance with KKDIK Annex-18) and necessary collection of information in the supply chain, handling of third-party access rights and financial transactions, completing the technical dossier and submitting it to MoEU as OR. TR-CLP notification, preparation and update of safety data sheets (SDS) and archiving and keeping information/data up-to-date complete the technical service. We also provide resources and expertise for the hazard assessment, exposure assessment and risk characterization when needed.

We can offer a service to facilitate consortia/SIEF joint registration activities (e.g. data/cost sharing, consortium, monitoring, registration, liaising fees) as well. DORUKSISTEM provides support for Consortia with the legal staff drafting the necessary documentation to get client’s consortium running. We offer managerial support to Consortia under KKDIK. We ensure that the companies fulfil on time the KKDIK obligations, and we also facilitate communication and exchange information within the SIEF and within the members of the consortium. In addition, we take care of the financial management agreed within the parties. We perform the technical services in toxicological testing, assessing and compiling environmental effects and data packages compiling and assessing human health, and exposure data, evaluating hazard classification and labelling, exposure scenarios, risk and characterization and preparing chemical safety reports. We assist our clients in the formation of consortium, the setup of a consortium agreement, the organisation of meetings and conference calls and all communication related to the dossier preparation and the joint registration process. We also offer support for the sometimes-complicated data- and cost sharing.

Doruksistem is the leader consultant company starting Consortia and SIEF joint registration activities and communications first in Turkey by forming (or web site media. Our consortia management web pages will be available soon within this web site.

On the other hand, we can prepare registration dossiers (data, hazard assessments, risk assessments) in accordance with the complete requirements of KKDIK with all our certified experts trained by the ministry registered trainers. Our company Doruksistem is also appointed as legal KDU (CAS - Chemical Assessment Specialist) training company by MoEU as well. You can review our CAS Trainings web site (in Turkish Only).

Providing a detailed answer covering details on lead-time need to assemble registration data, dossier, compliance translations and rates for all the different tonnage bands, update registration, simplified and exemption (polymer, R&D) notification schemes will take time according to your substances, classifications, and tonnage bands, etc. But you can be sure that we can plan and present all detailed information you need whenever you want including your detailed questions about KKDIK.
