||International standards for occupational exposure to toxic agents
||May 1988, Vol.13, No.5, p.529-530.
||This editorial considers the negative consequences of the absence of widely accepted occupational and environmental standards for toxic agents. This absence creates serious difficulties in evaluating hazards in different industrial and societal environments. Advisory reports of the ILO and national (ACGIH) or multinational (EEC) recommendations can no longer meet all the requirements of internationally diverse industry. An independent international academic group, the Collegium Ramazzini, exploring the possibility of developing a set of standards for the most important agents is anxious to gather scientific opinions and information from all sources of such data. Persons to contact and addresses are presented.
