Occupational exposure limits – Consultations on OEL recommendation

Occupational exposure limits – Consultations on OEL recommendation

As part of the process for establishing occupational exposure limits (OELs), ECHA prepares a scientific report for consideration by the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC). With the information provided during the consultations, ECHA’s report forms the annex of the RAC opinion discussed in the RAC plenary meetings. The consultations are held to allow parties to comment on the report and to support RAC in adopting an opinion on occupational exposure limits.

Parties are invited to comment on OEL proposals open for consultation, and indicated in the substance table below.

See the OEL substance evaluations page for a complete overview of the OEL activity on the substance. 

Please note: ECHA Committees will not take into account the comments received after the final deadline in their opinion making process and only the comments addressing the topic of the request will be taken into account.

Consultations close at 23:59 Helsinki time (EET, EEST)
