Abstract This Directive provides indicative exposure limits for 63 substances in line with the provisions of Directive 98/24/EC (see CIS 98-1094). For each substance the following information is given: EINECS and CAS number; 8h TWA limit value (in mg/m3 and ppm); short-term limit value (in mg/m3 and ppm); skin notation (when present). Member States are expected to introduce these limit values into their legislation by 31 Dec. 2001. Directive 96/94/EC (see CIS 97-9), which provided the previous listing of substances with indicative exposure limits, is repealed.
