||Council Directive 98/24/EC (see CIS 98-1094) which sets occupational exposure limits for a number of chemicals had to be transposed into the national legislations of European Union member states by 2001. Each member state was required to establish corresponding national exposure limit values based on, but not exceeding, the Community limit value. This information note lists the exposure limits set by the European Commission for approx. 50 substances and provides definitions for the terms used in the directive, including chemical agent, workplace, breathing zone, reference period, daily, short-term and 8-hour exposures, biological indicators and maximum working environment levels.
