This draft Regulation relates to a new entry of Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006. It would restrict the use of diisocyanates as substances on their own, as a constituent in other substances or in mixtures for industrial and professional use(s), individually or in any combination of these di-isocyanates, in a concentration above 0.1% by weight. A derogation is provided for the placing on the market and use of these substances and mixtures if the employer or self-employed worker ensures that adequate training is successfully completed by the industrial and professional users prior to their use. Application of the restriction is deferred for 2 years for use and 18 months for placing on the market of diisocyanates to allow sufficient time to adapt and achieve compliance with the regulation.
