Objectives of the consultation

The aim of this public consultation phase is to enable interested parties to share their comments regarding the scientific data collected for and used in the expertise work, and to express their positions regarding application of the available data by the OEL Expert Committee, prior to publication of the Agency's finalised reports and opinions.

This will enable ANSES to:

  • identify any important publications or scientific data that were not taken into account;
  • collect any comments on the interpretation of the available data;
  • collect any information that might help improve and develop the methodology used by the Agency for establishing and measuring occupational exposure limits for chemicals.
