On 7 October 2016, German REACH competent authorities submitted a restriction dossier to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) proposing risk management measures to ensure safe handling of diisocyanates at the workplace. The dossier calls for a mandatory training scheme for the industrial and professional use of diisocyanates but also allows applying for exemptions from this restriction.

ISOPA and its partner organisations representating industrial and professional users of diisocyanates at European and national levels, are committed to the safety of workers handling diisocyanates.
