||In the report (an update of the document published in 1979: RA 2/79) the health hazards of exposure to carbon monoxide are evaluated. Attention is given to: previous document and recommendations; present guidelines and standards; toxicodynamics, with special attention to effects reported in recent studies (effects on the cardiovascular system, the central nervous system, offspring, and carcinogenicity); previous evaluation by international bodies; evaluations of human health risks. Analysis of the data available resulted in a health-based recommended exposure limit of 25ppm (29mg/m3), 8h-TWA (thereby maintaining the present occupational exposure limit). This recommendation is only applicable for work conditions of light to moderate physical exertion. An exclusive directive is given for cigarette smokers (Annex in previous report).
