Isocyanate restrictions


Isocyanate restrictions

According to the provisions of Reg. (EU) 2020/1149 and art. 227 of Legislative Decree 81/2008, starting from 24 August 2023 it will be mandatory to have a specific license to be able to apply some polyurethane products containing diisocyanates in a concentration > 0.1%. 
The license will have to be renewed every 5 years. 

Very few Sivit products are involved in this obligation, see the document "Compliance Sivit - Isocyanates", however in construction it is common to find yourself handling this kind of substances. The NCO license is essential for the employees of our sector. 

Considering the usual uses of isocyanate-based products in the resin flooring and building sector, we recommend to chose the proper on-line training course (with final test and license issue) on the following site:

Note. Even in case a specific training is not mandatory, all applicators should have sufficient knowledge of the risks associated with the use of isocyanate-based products. Always consult the Safety Data Sheets and carefully adopt the appropriate individual protection measures for the safe handling of these substances.
