Brussels -- A new ISOPA website and new regulations for PU in Germany were the key points of 2015 and 2014 respectively, according to Joerg Palmersheim, the organisation's secretary general.
Palmersheim also told UTECH-polyurethane.com that renting out the organisation’s Passive House was a particular achievement for 2014, adding that it meant that its sustainability potential could be assessed in real terms.
In terms of regulatory matters around polyurethane, Palmersheim said that he was delighted that Germany is to comply with European rules on selling products containing MDI chemical mixtures.
He said: "ISOPA is delighted to hear that Germany will adapt its law on self service prohibition of the sale of products containing MDI. According to REACH mixtures containing the substance can be safely placed on the market for the general public provided the packaging contains protective gloves and relevant health warnings. MDI products will soon be available in self service for the general public again."
Germany is in the process of amending the existing legislation.
