Title Urethane (ethyl carbamate) - Health-based calculated occupational cancer risk values
Bibliographic information Gezondheidsraad, Postbus 16052, 2500 BB Den Haag, Netherlands, Sep. 2000. 34p. 12 ref.
Abstract Main topics covered: survey of carcinogenicity studies suitable for risk estimation in the occupational environment; carcinogenic activity in experimental animals under life-time low-dose exposure; health risk to humans; calculation of health-based conditions; occupational cancer risk values; occupational exposure limits; toxicity profile. The additional lifetime estimated cancer risk for ethyl cabamate is estimated to be 4 x 10-5 for 40 years of occupational exposure to 0.002mg/m3 and 4 x 10-3 for 40 years of occupational exposure to 0.2mg/m3. The substance is listed as a carcinogen in several countries (e.g., the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom). Summary in Dutch.
