Only natural or legal persons resident in Turkey can be ’registrars'. Registration must be made by the person in question in the following cases:
- If the substance is manufactured in quantities of 1 ton or more per year per manufacturer,
- If the substance is imported in quantities of 1 ton or more per year per importer,
- If appointed as the only representative according to Article 9 of KKDİK By Law.
A non-resident company does not have a direct obligation under KKDİK regulation. The companies that are required to fulfill the obligation of KKDIK regulation are the companies that import from abroad. However, the non-resident substance manufacturer or article manufacturer may decide to appoint an ‘only representative’ to alleviate the obligations of importers.
