UK REACH Regulation Update

As of 24th August 2024, training is required for the use of substances containing diisocyanates

What REACH stands for

“Adopted in 2006, REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation. It is a UK Government regulation that aims at improving the protection of human health and the environment from potential risks from chemical substances while ensuring the UK chemical industry’s global competitiveness is maintained.”

New REACH Regulations

The UK Government has put in force a new restriction on the use of products containing more than 0.1% of monomeric diisocyanates. These new rules will also apply to products such as polyurethane adhesives, sealants and foams used in industrial production and construction work.

Beginning on August 24, 2023, all professionals and industrial users must complete training before using such products. DIY users are not affected by this law.
