EPA Regulations on Polyurethane

On January 8, 2015, the U.S. EPA announced action to protect consumers from importing and using harmful isocyanates in polyurethane, as they make the material highly vulnerable to environmental degradation and may lead to chemical decomposition after coming in contact with water. The Significant New Use Rule (SNUR), a proposed action by the EPA, would require importers and manufacturers to inform the EPA 90 days before resuming or starting new usage of isocyanates.
