The European Polyol Association (EPA) was established in 1991 to represent the interests of its members at the level of the European Union and other European and international bodies. Its members are the principal producers of polyols (sugar alcohols) in the European Union. Associate membership is open to non-EU producers.
Through this website, EPA aims to monitor the regulatory developments surrounding polyols and to provide scientifically-based information about polyols to any interested parties including consumers, health practitioners and regulatory bodies.
