Scientific evaluation of Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)

The Nordic Expert Group for Criteria Documentation of Health Risks from Chemicals (NEG) has recently published an evaluation on Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a class of 209 synthetic compounds (con¬geners) of which 12 are dioxin-like. For environmental reasons, PCB production and use is banned or restricted worldwide, but occupational exposure to PCBs may still occur e.g. during renovation work and handling of waste and also in PCB-contaminated buildings.
