Occupational exposure limit web pages published

ECHA has launched a new <link https: echa.europa.eu oel>web section on the occupational exposure limit (OEL) assessment work carried out by the Agency under the Chemical Agents Directive (CAD) and the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (CMD).

The web pages provide background information on the relevant legislation, and outline the steps, actors and timelines in the preparation of opinions on OEL values. An activity list will be added later, which will provide an up-to-date overview of planned, ongoing and completed OEL activities, including calls for evidence, public consultations and the adoption of final opinions by the Committee for Risk Assessment.

The pages are introduced in the CAD/CMD section under the revamped “Legislation” tab, which lists all pieces of legislation currently implemented by ECHA.
