Chemical, Physical and Biological Agents at Work Directive

EU. Indicative OELVs - Directive 91/322/EEC

This Directive is based on Directive 80/1107/EEC, which was repealed and replaced by Directive 98/24/EC. It sets out limit values for certain substances in its Annex. The limit values for 17 of these substances were later on transferred to Directive 2006/15/EC. The current Directive establishes values for a reference period of eight hours for 6 substances
