The Commission's Scientific Secretariat

The Scientific Secretariat organises and coordinates the work of the Commission and is responsible for verifying the content, for editing and for publishing the List of MAK and BAT Values and the scientific documentation. It participates in conceptual work, such as the development of new evaluation criteria for carcinogenic, germ cell mutagenic or allergenic chemical substances, and maintains contacts with national and international expert committees. The ability of the Permanent Senate Commission for the Investigation of Health Hazards of Chemical Compounds in the Work Area (MAK Commission) to carry out its mandate is therefore crucially supported by the work of the Secretariat.
