Open Consultation: CD287 - Carcinogens and Mutagens – Revision of limit values in EH40/2005 “Workplace Exposure Limits”

This Consultation relates to the implementation of Directive 2017/2398 which amends Directive 2004/37/EC and introduces 11 new occupational exposure limits values (OELVs) and amends 2 existing OELVs for substances to help protect workers from the ill-health effects of exposure to carcinogens and mutagens in the workplace.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) consults stakeholders to seek their views on its proposals. It believes that public consultation provides an open and transparent approach to its decision-making. Following consultation HSE will make a recommendation to the Secretary of State on the best way forward.

The Consultation sets out the HSE’s proposals, subject to the ongoing negotiations on our relationship with the EU.

Responses must be received by 7 June 2019.
