||During 2002, 17,848 cases of occupational skin disease were registered by the German mutual occupational accident insurance associations. German occupational disease legislation requires insurance providers to carry out an investigation to determine whether a disease is caused by occupational factors. In order to improve the quality of these evaluations and the transparency of decisions concerning skin diseases, recommendations were published in the form of a document known as the "Bamberg notice" (Bamberger Merkblatt). These recommendations were approved by all parties concerned. This article presents the various aspects that need to be taken into account according to the notice when conducting a medical evaluation aimed at establishing the occupational nature of a skin disease.
