Today, ISOPA and ALIPA launch the German version of their online training programme on the safe use of diisocyanates. The training programme enables professional and industrial users of diisocyanates to comply with new EU training requirements under the REACH regulation which will become mandatory from 24 August 2023. 

ISOPA and ALIPA together with our industry partners are moving forward in the roll-out of the training programme for industrial and professional users of diisocyanates developed together with industry partners. The programme has been developed to ensure compliance with EU training requirements becoming mandatory from 24 August 2023. If users do not complete these mandatory trainings, they will no longer be allowed to work with diisocyanates.

After kick-starting the online training programme in English on 1st November 2021, ISOPA and ALIPA today launch the German version, which can be accessed via the dedicated website (link to be provided). Both the German and the English versions of the training programme can be accessed in the entire EU. 

ISOPA and ALIPA are working to make the trainings available in all the official EU languages as soon as possible to ensure safe use of diisocyanates all over Europe.
