HELSINKI, FINLAND — The European Chemicals Agency said it will reach a decision in a few months whether to more strictly regulate toluene diisocyanate under the European Union's Reach legislation.

TDI is one of four substances of that ECHA said there is no need to seek further information, and concerns the substance poses could be successfully assessed using existing information. TDI is a substance on ECHA's Community Rolling Action Plan, which lists the substances subject to substance evaluation process under Reach.

Listing in the CoRAP does not necessarily mean that substance will also be a Substance of Very High Concern—and more strictly regulated—but it is a possibility.

ECHA said it is waiting for the Polish Bureau for Chemical Substances and Preparation in Lodz, Poland, to report on whether more action is needed to reduce potential risks.
