||Users and regulatory authorities who do not know the exact composition of coal-tar products cannot assess their potential hazards. In this analysis of 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in 30 coal-tar products, their relative proportions were found to be quite constant. It is recommended to use benzo(a)pyrene as the reference substance for the selection of potentially carcinogenic industrial substances and for the assessment of working conditions.
