Título Perspectives in the management of carcinogenic risk in Norway
Información bibliográfica 30 Apr. 1981, Vol.363, p.247-253. 4 ref.
Resumen There is currently no official policy on the management of carcinogenic risks in Norway. Major principles are laid down in the Working Environment Act and the Product Control Act. The Directorate of Labour Inspection publishes a list of acceptable limits for airborne contaminants, in which carcinogens are specifically identified. In a proposed classification, Class I substances include documented carcinogens and Class II suspected carcinogens. An Advisory Committee for Work with Carcinogenic Substances has been set up; its terms of reference and activities are briefly described. The Cancer Registry provides for epidemiological studies, case reference studies and linking of past and present workers in specific factories with cancer incidence.
