Turkey Has New “REACH” Regulation

In June 2017, the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization of Turkey (the Ministry) published its Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Regulation (REACH). The newly promulgated REACH repeals three regulations – Regulation on the Restriction and Prohibition of Hazardous Matters and Mixtures, Regulation on the Inventory Control of Chemicals, and Regulation on Safety Data Sheets in relation to the Hazardous Matters and Mixtures – bringing the significant and relevant provisions of all three regulations under the same umbrella. The Turkish REACH which is almost identical to the EU REACH is regarded to be also important for compliance to EU regulations.
