Abstract The German administrative ordinance TRBA 310 on biological agents was extended by adding Escherichia coli, Entamoeba histolytica, Fusarium oxysporum, F. solani, F. verticilloides, Adenovirus and Semliki-Forest Virus (SFV) to those pathogenic organisms exposure to which requires periodic medical examinations. A description of the pathogenic actions in the human body of the new entries is provided, as well as information on preventive and therapeutic measures. The new TRBA 460 and 462 which provide a classification of pathogenic fungi and viruses are presented. The classifications reflect the infection risk faced by healthy employees if exposed to these agents.
