The Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation (MoEU) published the new Chemicals Law (KKDIK) (in Turkish) in the official gazette on June 23.
The new law succeeds at implementing the bulk of REACH. Substances may no longer be marketed without registration, as Yahya Kesimal, head of the chemicals division of MoEU told ChemicalWatch.
According to Kesimal, eight of ten Turkish companies have already registered their substances under EU REACH. He also says that providing the required translations into Turkish are not a problem for the companies.
