Resumen These amendments, dated 26 june 1974, became effective on 1 July 1974. They prescribe that exposure to airborne contaminants must not exceed the TLVs adopted by the ACGIH, and that the 8-h time-weighted average airborne concentration of asbestos dust to which workers are exposed must not exceed 5 fibres >5µm in length per ml, as determined by the membrane filter method.
