||Epidemiological studies carried out during the last thirty years among populations in both general and occupational settings show that an increasing number of chronic obstructive bronchopneumopathies (COBPs) are caused by occupational factors. Sectors of activity where the causal relationship are best documented include the mining and textile industries, cereals and foodgrains, pigsties and dairy farming. From 1988 onwards, the progressive implementation of regulatory measures enabled certain occupational COBPs to be compensated. However, the medical criteria specified in the schedule of occupational diseases are very restrictive, and many occupational aetiologies cannot currently be compensated in this framework.
