Echa commits to regular work on occupational exposure limits
Echa and the European Commission have signed an agreement that binds the agency to recommending occupational exposure limits (OELs) for four to five substances a year, from 2020 onwards.

The move effectively reassigns the responsibilities of DG Employment's Scientific Committee on Occupational Exposure Limits (Scoel) to Echa’s Risk Assessment Committee (Rac).

The Commission had announced its intention to do so, last year, following concerns over an overlap between OELs required under occupational safety and health (Osh) legislation and workplace derived no-effect levels (Dnels) under REACH.

In future, the Commission will assign chemicals to Echa for an OEL assessment. The agency says work will start right away, most likely with lead and diisocyanates as the first priority substances.
