With their variety of applications polyurethanes are of the key components to long-lasting, sustainable, strong and comfortable products we use in our everyday lives.

In order to regulate all the aspects of the production and consumption of goods and services, the European Union has developed a series of comprehensive legislation to be transposed and implemented in its Member States.

The cornerstone of its chemicals regulation is the Regulation on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).

The European Union has also developed numerous other legislative tools covering areas from Energy Efficiency to Eco-design.

The polyurethanes industry is committed to respect European legislation and to provide its feedback in an effort to facilitate EU regulation implementation and make them even more beneficial to society.
