Abstract The 2009 edition contains a list of scientifically recommended threshold limit values for about 1000 chemical compounds. Carcinogens, germ cell mutagens, embryotoxicants, sensitizing substances and those potentially bearing a risk to pregnancy are treated in specific sections. The report and the accompanying CD-ROM includes the complete list of MAK and BAT values. The CD-ROM allows searches by substance name or CAS number. Of particular value are the lists of substances which were reviewed in the past 12 months, including substances being examined for the establishment of MAK and BAT values in coming years. Contents of the 2009 edition: significance, use and derivation of MAK values (maximum workplace concentrations - maximale Arbeitsplatz-Konzentration); lists of substances with MAK values; carcinogenic substances; sensitizing substances; aerosols; limitation of exposure peaks; skin absorption; MAK values and pregnancy; germ cell mutagens; substances requiring special consideration; significance and use of biological tolerance values (BAT); list of substances with BAT values; biological guideline values (Biologische Leitwerte - BLW).
