The Anhydrides Joint Industry Taskforce is representing the producers/importers, formulators, and end-users of the substances Hexahydrophthalic Anhydride (HHPA) and Methylhexahydrophthalic Anhydride (MHHPA). These Anhydrides are currently under scrutiny by the European Chemicals Agency and the European Commission and might fall under authorisation in the future.
The AJIT was set up to:
Collect socio-economic information on the use of (M)HHPA
Gather information on exposure levels and risks associated with anhydrides and propose protective measures
Inform regulatory authorities of possible risk management options for the use of Anhydrides
