ECHA adds eight substances to the Candidate List for authorisation
The European Chemicals Agency has added 8 chemical substances to the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) for authorisation. Following the unanimous agreement of the Member State Committee, ECHA is adding 8 substances on the Candidate List, which now contains 38 substances in total. The 8 substances, which are carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic (CMR) substances, are listed below. As foreseen by REACH, a specific procedure will be followed to decide whether the substances should also be included in the authorisation list. Source :
Exploratory survey of Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs)
Exploratory survey of Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) for Carcinogens, Mutagens and Reprotoxic substances (CMRs) at EU Member States level This report is based on a one-off survey carried out late 2007-early 2008 among EU-OSHA's network partners at the request of the European Commission. Rather than presenting an in-depth study of the systems in place for setting occupational exposure limits (OELs) for carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances, this report provides a general overview of the situation in 21 Member States. In recent years, all Member States have made available their...
Reducing Cytotoxic Drug Exposure in Healthcare: Determinants Influencing Cleaning Effectiveness
Many cytotoxic drugs used to treat cancer and other diseases are known to be carcinogenic or mutagenic. Health care workers who handle these drugs may be at risk of developing adverse health effects such as organ toxicities, reproductive problems, tumours, and cancer. Although several guidelines for cytotoxic drug handling exist, studies have shown that contamination can occur even when proper engineering controls are in place. Using laboratory research methods, this project examined the effectiveness of the cleaning agents used to clean surfaces contaminated with the three cytotoxic drugs most...
