Resumen This notification came into force on 20 Nov. 1993. It implements directive 90/679/EEC (CIS 91-29) and applies to all work involving risk of exposure to biological substances (microorganisms, cell cultures, human parasites). The principle of substitution is stated, meaning that whenever a harmful biological agent can be substituted by a less harmful one, the more harmful agent may not be used. Work must generally be planned in such a way that no hazards occur. If this is not possible, other safety measures must be taken by the employer. Safety instructions must be provided in writing. If employees are exposed to harmful biological agents, a record must be kept of this for 40 years. Employees have the right to medical examination before employment and regularly thereafter. Work with harmful agents must be reported to the Work Environment Service (Arbejdstilsynet). Any accident that might lead to the contamination of workers must be reported to the local Work Environment Service. In annex: list of microorganisms, with hazard classification and labelling requirements.
