Chemical Regulatory consultancy Yordas Group has opened a new entity in Istanbul, Turkey by the name of Yordas Danışmanlık Limited Şirketi. The erection of a new office reflects the increased demand in services aimed at chemical importers and manufacturers who need help complying with new obligations under KKDIK, Turkey’s new REACH-like law.

KKDIK addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. In contrast with EU-REACH, following the 12-month Pre-registration period at the end of 2020, KKDIK will open a single Registration window running until the end of 2023. During this period, all substances will need to be registered.

Yordas Group can help organisations with dossier preparation and translation, provide Certified Chemical Assessment Experts to sign off the dossier and CSR, author and certify SDS and maintain tonnage and importer lists. In addition, Yordas provides Only Representative and SIEF representation services. Further information about Yordas’ services for the Turkish market can be found at
