The year 2016 comes with numerous regulatory changes within Turkey and EU. Compliance of your products that are placed on the Turkish market are directly related to your performance in meeting the requirements of these changes. We would like to express that these actions are not easy to cope with in a short notice.

Some of these changes are briefly given in the following:

Turkish SEA (implementation of EU CLP) : Classification according to Turkish SEA Regulation has been implemented for substances since 1 June 2015. SEA Compliant classification will be obligatory for mixtures as of the date of 1 June 2016. Please consider that Turkish SEA Regulation is using the same building blocks of the EU CLP when compared to UN-GHS. For EU suppliers and other suppliers who are familiar with EU CLP criteria that part would not be challenging but for sure other global suppliers should consider CLP classification of their products that are exported to Turkey.

Turkish SEA (EU CLP) Compliant Labelling : All mixture products classified as hazardous that you place on the Turkish market in accordance with Turkish SEA, must be labelled in accordance with Turkish SEA before 1 June 2016 at the latest. In this context, products must be labelled with proper Turkish Labels, including hazard pictogram, and correct Turkish signal word, H and P statements as defined in the Annexes of the Turkish SEA regulation. Neglecting Turkish SEA labelling may confront your importers with severe penalties and sactions.

New- Turkish SDS Regulation: In order to implement the EU format for SDSs, new Turkish SDS Regulation (O.G. 29204) was published on December 2014.

If your product has been classified as hazardous and/or contains any substance subject to an occupational exposure limit, providing a compliant Turkish SDS to your professional downstream users is a legal obligation.

Compliant Turkish SDSs must be authored by certified person. SDSs should comply with the new SDS regulation before 1 June 2015 for substances & 1 June 2016 for mixtures. Also In case of any revision applied to your SDSs including the revision to comply with this new SDS regulation, you must re-send the SDS down the supply chain with in a month after the revision to whom you have supplied the product within the last 12 months.
