On 4 August 2020, the European Union published the REACH Restriction on diisocyanates which will introduce mandatory training requirements for workers using diisocyanates from 24 August 2023.

To help stakeholders understand the next steps, ISOPA/ALIPA have published an updated version of their e-book on the Restriction aiming to provide a brief introduction and answer some of the main questions that actors along the polyurethanes value chain may have.

More specifically, this guide elaborates on processes and regulatory measures taken under REACH (European Chemicals Regulation) and how the industry will work towards providing trainings for those who work with diisocyanates.
