Mineral wool products including glass wool products have been extensively studied with more than 2 500 scientific publications which support the decision of the most recognized experts that mineral wool fibres are safe to manufacture, install and live with. This sound science has been recognised by Health authorities at International, EU and national level and translated into rules and regulations, e.g. in the REACH regulation, where mineral wool fibres are not classified as hazardous. In addition, the Mineral Wool industry has initiated a voluntary independent certification scheme (EUCEB) ensuring that all certified products placed in the market are in conformity with all EU regulatory requirements, including bio-solubility.
