ISOPA / ALIPA Secretary General Jörg Palmersheim gave an overview of the new regulation under REACH on Diisocyanates published in August 2020 which introduced new minimum training requirements for workers handling Diisocyanates and mixtures containing Diisocyanates. We heard about how risk and exposure impact what level of training is necessary, along with the wider scope of the restriction. We look forward to working with everyone involved over the coming years to ensure the implementation of the training becomes a success.

This was followed by a lively Q&A session where we discussed training obligations and levels, interplay with national authorities and the future of < 0,1% monomer HDI products. ISOPA / ALIPA would like to thank everyone who could attend.
