The Cefic BDO & Derivatives sector group will organise on 18 March in cooperation with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) a workshop on the NMP (1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone) safe handling guideline that ECHA published in July 2019. The aim of the event is to explain how the guideline can help users of NMP comply with the REACH restriction.

NMP, an aprotic solvent, is used in the manufacturing of semiconductors, batteries, man-made fibres, wire coating, pharmaceuticals and agricultural products. The industry wants to show that the restriction legislation is effective to protect workers exposed to NMP. The event is targeted to HSE staff, operations and process managers working in companies that are handling NMP as well as representatives from the European Commission and Member States who have an interest in NMP.
