Given the widespread use of the substance as an industrial solvent, we’d like to inform the companies that DMF shall not be manufactured, used and placed on the EU market, as such or as a component of other substances or in mixtures in a concentration of 0.3 % w/w or more, unless the requirements of the restriction have been followed. These include the evaluation and adoption of appropriate risk management measures (RMMs) and operating conditions (OCs) and the communication of Derived No-Effect Levels (DNELs) in CSRs and SDSs.
Specific derogations are provided for DMF use as solvent in:
- direct or transfer polyurethane coating processes of textiles and paper material or the production of polyurethane membranes; and
- dry and wet spinning processes of synthetic fibres.
