COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2020/1149 ON PRODUCTS CONTAINING DIISOCYANΑTES

The European Regulation 1907/2006 (REACH: Registration, Evaluation, Authorization & Restriction of Chemicals) is a European Union regulation established with the aim of better protecting human health and the environment from the risks that chemical products may pose.

The European Union, on August 4, 2020, put into effect a new regulation concerning the use of products with a concentration of diisocyanate compounds greater than 0.1% (individually and in combination). Diisocyanates, among others, are used in chemical building products such as polyurethane (PU) products.

The relevant Commission Regulation (EU) 2020/1149 of 3 August 2020 amending Annex XVII of Regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regarding diisocyanate compounds, is available in 23 languages, including Greek, and you can read it by selecting here.

.

PENETRON HELLAS S.A., acting immediately, has already complied with the relevant regulation and from February 20, 2022, the products of PENETRON HELLAS S.A. that contain diisocyanate compounds, state this in the information on the label of each package.

According to Regulation 2020/1149, after 24 August 2023, industrial and professional users will have to have successfully attended training on the safe use of diisocyanates before using the substance or mixture.

"Industrial and professional users" means all workers or self-employed persons who handle diisocyanate compounds in their pure form, as components of other substances or in mixtures for industrial and professional uses, or who supervise such operations.

Please follow the link in order to select the appropriate training module and then, after taking part in the training program, receive the relevant certification, which is valid for 5 years (after 5 years the specific certificate must be renewed):
