Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
As you certainly know, every company that handles diisocyanates in the EU is obliged to train its employees as to the safe handling of these substances, and to provide evidence of this.
All companies along the value chain are affected by this obligation, from manufacturers/importers to system houses/formulators to further processors.
Starting 24 August 2023, training will be mandatory for industrial and professional users of diisocyanates. The diisocyanate industry has developed a comprehensive training programme. This programme is available as online training not only in English, but also in other EU languages.
To access the training programme please click on the link below:
Safe use of Diisocyanates - Homepage (safeusediisocyanates.eu)
After the successful completion of the training, each participant will receive a certificate which must be kept as proof. The participant must repeat the training at least every five years.
For additional information please refer to the European associations ISOPA and ALIPA.
In case you are not the right contact person, we kindly ask you to forward this important information to your company's occupational safety specialist.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
