CIS 01-1494 Huici Montagud A., Ferrer Panzano R.
Occupational exposure limits in the European Union and in Spain
Valores límite de exposición profesional en la Unión Europea y en España [in Spanish]
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.

Enzyme allergy: Standards for airborne exposure in the workplace?
Microbial enzymes are used in the detergent and food industries. They are considered to be a risk factor in the development of occupational asthma. A number of studies have shown that sensitization may occur at concentrations lower than the present Dutch exposure limit of 60ng/m3. Dose-response relationships published for the fungal enzyme alpha-amylase are used to show that this enzyme can induce specific IgE responses and symptoms of allergic respiratory diseases at mean exposure levels of less than 1 to 2ng/m3. Further studies are needed to clarify whether sensitization was due to these mean levels or to repeated short peak exposures of 10 to 100ng/m3 or more which are most likely to occur with some frequency. The enzyme alpha-amylase is used in bakeries to improve the baking quality of the dough. It is derived from the mould Aspergillus oryzae.

Changes in the classification of carcinogenic chemicals in the work area - Section III of the German list of MAK and BAT values
Carcinogenic chemicals in the work area are currently classified into three categories in section III of the German List of MAK and BAT values (list of values on maximum workplace concentrations and biological tolerance for occupational exposures). On the basis of advancing knowledge of reaction mechanisms and the potency of carcinogens, these three categories are now supplemented with two additional categories. The essential feature of substances classified in the new categories is that exposure to these chemicals does not contribute significantly to risk of cancer in man, provided that an appropriate exposure limit (MAK value) is observed. The basis for a better differentiation of carcinogens is discussed, the new categories are defined and possible criteria for classification are described. Topics: biological threshold limits; carcinogenic effects; carcinogens; styrene; dioxane; classification systems; classification; genetic effects; Germany; hazard evaluation; threshold limit values.
