In early January 2013, the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment issued a new list of CMR-substances. The substances on this list of carcinogenic substances and processes, mutagenic and NON-limited list of reproductive substances are subject to the compulsory supplementary registry of hazardous substances of the Dutch Working Conditions Act. The Dutch CMR-list is updated 2 times a year. The most recent version can be downloaded via the following hyperlink (note: the text is in Dutch): https://zoek.officielebekendmakingen.nl/stcrt-2013-15.html.
Simultaneously with Update 2013-02 two new international versions of DOHSBase Compare have been released.
First, a version for the United Kingdom (UK-Xtend), with the English occupational exposure limits (WELs) are at the top of the hierarchy.
The second version is aimed at France: FR-Xtend. In these versions, the French occupational exposure limits (VLEs) are at the top of the hierarchy.
More information is available on our products page.
At the conference of the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) we will be introducing the first UK-version of DOHSBase Compare. Next to the Dutch (NL) en European (EU) versions. The UK-Xtend version uses a hierarchy in which the English Workplace Exposure Limits (WEL) will be dominant, followed by the European binding limits and health-based OEL’s of the Netherlands, Germany and USA.
