Abstract A new edition of threshold limit values for exposures at the place of work was published in Switzerland in 2005. In addition to a number of substances appearing for the first time and changes in some of the values, the list now includes the classification of CMRs (carcinogens, mutagens and reprotoxic) substances. This article explains the concept of threshold limit values at the place of work as well as the CMR classification.
