The restriction on diisocyanates, amending Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is available in all official EU languages here.
To ensure that workers across the EU can continue to handle diisocyanates safely, new training requirements will become mandatory for professional and industrial users under the EU’s REACH Regulation from 24 August 2023.
The user of diisocyanates
- either the employer of the user or the self-employed person - must complete and document the completion of the training.
If you do not comply with these mandatory trainings, you will no longer be allowed to work with with products containing diisocyanates exceeding the 0.1% limit established by Regulation (EU) 2020/1149.
and our industry partners are organizing a comprehensive training programme to ensure the safe use of diisocyanates for producers and professional users all over Europe.
