Working Groups

The Commission consists of working groups which prepare the proposals for maximum workplace concentrations (MAK values), biological tolerance values (BAT values) and biologische Leitwerte (BLW) or for the classification of substances as carcinogenic, germ cell mutagenic, sensitising, percutaneously absorbed or as posing a risk during pregnancy. Other working groups propose and evaluate methods for analyses in the air at the workplace and in biological material. Proposals from other working groups as to carcinogenicity, germ cell mutagenicity, sensitisation and percutaneous absorption are also adopted.

The members of the Commission are supported in the working groups by a large number of guests and ad hoc experts on specific topics.
