EU-OSHA welcomes its new founding regulation, coming into force on 20 February 2019.

This new regulation takes account of the rapidly changing world of work and is a clear endorsement of EU-OSHA’s continuing relevance in the future. It is aligned with the regulations of other EU agencies under DG Employment and introduces few substantial changes.
