||Loose-leaf compendium listing average exposure limits (VME) and maximum exposure limits (VLE) for harmful substances, tolerable biological exposure values (VBT) and exposure limits for physical hazards (radiation and noise) according to Swiss legislation. A new chapter addresses health risk assessment for substances without published VMEs. Important modifications have been made to chapters concerning airborne substances, isocyanates, inert dusts and electromagnetic fields. The exposure limit values are for the most part taken from German publications. The list includes the VMEs and VLEs of approximately 1000 chemical substances, VBTs for 41 commonly-used substances and permissible levels for physical agents such as UV radiation, electromagnetic radiation and noise. Previous (1992) edition analysed: CIS 92-1070.
