A safe future for polyurethane (PU) products
A new restriction on diisocyanates adopted under REACH
On 4 August 2020, a new restriction on diisocyanates was adopted by the European authorities under REACH.
As of 24 August 2023, training is required for all professional and industrial users of products with a total monomeric diisocyanate concentration of > 0.1%. In addition, the legal requirements should appear on packaging as of 24 February 2022.
FEICA's PU Restriction Technical Working Group (TWG) created an updated leaflet titled 'A safe future for polyurethane products (version 2)' explaining more about the restriction.
In collaboration with some of our National Association Members, the leaflet was made available in eight languages.
