Organic Solvents Regulations

The Organic Solvents Regulations 2012 is a set of laws established by the European Union to regulate the use of organic solvents in industrial and professional settings. Organic solvents are used in various applications such as cleaning, degreasing, and manufacturing of paints and coatings, but can pose health risks if not handled properly. The regulations aim to protect workers and the environment from the harmful effects of organic solvents by setting exposure limits, requiring proper labeling and storage, and mandating the use of safer alternatives where possible. Compliance with the regulations is mandatory for all businesses and organizations that use organic solvents. The regulations also require employers to provide their workers with adequate training and protective equipment to ensure their safety.
