Bibliographic information Directorate-General of Labour (Ministerie van Sociale Zaken en Werkgelegenheid, Directoraat-Generaal van de Arbeid), Postbus 90804, 2509 LV Den Haag, Netherlands, 1992. iii, 33p. 34 ref.
Abstract Evaluation of the health hazards of exposure to allyl glycidyl ether (AGE) and isopropyl glycidyl ether (IGE). Attention is given to: identity, physical and chemical properties, monitoring; sources of exposure; environmental levels and human exposure; guidelines and standards; toxicokinetics; effects in animals and man (acute toxicity, long-term toxicity/carcinogenicity); previous evaluations by national and international bodies; evaluation of human health risks. Analysis of the data available led to a recommended health-based occupational exposure limit of 0.5mg/m3 (0.1ppm) as an 8h-TWA concentration for both AGE and IGE. Detailed summary in Dutch.
