Turkey REACH: How to Avoid an Import Stoppage

The registration phase for chemicals has been running since the start of this year. What does that mean for you as a company? You should preregister your chemicals as soon as possible and have them registered if you want to manufacture or import them in a quantity greater than one ton per year. Otherwise, an import stoppage may occur. 

Even a late preregistration is still possible. But if you have already preregistered your chemicals, you should take the next step and undertake a registration as soon as possible although the registration phase runs until the end of 2023. Before the registration you should look at the required considerations and clarify the following questions: 

  • What possibilities exist to apply an exception for your chemical? 
  • Is a new registration required or is it enough for you to participate in an existing  
    registration (through the purchase of a letter of access (LoA)?  
  • What is your role? Are you a coregistrant or the lead registrant? 
  • What data do you require as the lead registrant or coregistrant? 
  • How do you communicate with other potential registrants? 
  • Do you have data or studies that you want to or should include?  
  • What data might be missing? Have all the required analytical chemical studies been performed? 
  • Have some chemicals been forgotten that should be preregistered in a follow-up activity? 

If your company does not have an office in Turkey, we would be pleased to fulfill the role of an Only Representative for you.
