ISOPA and ALIPA release call to action on training for the safe use of Diisocyanates

ISOPA and ALIPA are working to launch a comprehensive package of training materials to ensure workers across Europe continue to handle diisocyanates safely. Jörg Palmersheim, Secretary-General of ISOPA and ALIPA, provides an update in the video below on the status of the roll-out of the trainings. To stay up to date on future developments, ISOPA/ALIPA encourages stakeholders to sign-up for news on the availability of trainings and other relevant developments.

Obligatory training for diisocyanates users 

 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 users do not comply with these mandatory trainings, they will no longer be allowed to work with diisocyanates.

That’s why ISOPA and ALIPA with our industry partners are organizing a comprehensive training programme to ensure the safe use of diisocyanates for producers and professional users all over Europe.
