||A survey was commissioned by the French Ministry of Labour to identify chemical CMR agents (carcinogens, mutagens and reprotoxic agents) widely used in France in occupational settings, together with the number of potentially-exposed workers by sector of activity. National and European statistics and information collected from a representative sample of 2000 enterprises involved in 30 sectors were analysed to evaluate the annual consumption of 324 chemical CMR agents and several hundred petroleum derivatives. Findings are discussed. They show that 4.8 million tons of chemical CMR agents were consumed in France in 2005. Ten agents were consumed in quantities above 100,000 tons/year, while for 168 agents, consumption was very low or nil. The chemical and pharmaceutical industries were the main consumers of primary chemical CMR agents.
