Management of MBDFs and consortia

Turkish By Law on KKDIK, which came into force in 2017, refers to the Turkish By Law Act on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals in Turkey.

The provision and sharing of data between competitors require a high degree of administration and confidentiality. In order to best manage this process, Turkish authorities require the formation of MBDFs / consortia by chemical companies which manufacture or distribute the same substances. Usually they commission an external MBDF or consortium manager to act as their independent trustee.

The trustee is responsible for the supervision of secretarial, fiduciary and financial activities so that the flow of information between all members of the MBDF / consortium is always guaranteed, competition law can be complied with and confidentiality is maintained.
