Reaching the EU: KKDIK and the Turkish case
Beyond the EU, REACH is becoming the world standard for chemical regulation.
Korea, Japan, China and Turkey recently adopted regulations like REACH without any direct legal liability.
The case of Turkey, the United Kingdom after brexit likely scenario (s) is an interesting counter example.
Prior to 2008, the chemical industry in Turkey has very few rules and restrictions were operating under a very light regulatory regime. After Turkey's future membership in REACH provided and demand for light, Turkey began to adopt a series of regulations to implement EU chemicals legislation. Examples of such laws include the SAE (CLP Regulation), namely the Regulation on restrictions on the production, marketing and use of certain hazardous substances and preparations (26.12.2008 / 27092) and the SAE, namely the Safety Data Sheet Regulation (26.12.2008 / 27092) Regulation.
However, both Laws represented only the late transposition of the old repeated EU legislation, EC Directive and the 99/45 / EC Directive in the case of SAE; Directive 76/769 / EC in the case of SAE (now reaches annex XVII) and oirective 00186 / EC (now reaches annex 11). Such legislation, though important in terms of Turkey's EU chemical regulations and procedures to help create an appropriate chemical legislation standards, it was not the equivalent of the REACH reform. However, the Turkish Regulation, KEK / CICR or chemical / chemical inventory and control / Cliemicals invention and control Regulation (28.12. 2008/27092), which most closely reflects the REACH framework.
