About the list

This list is included for all Austrian customers, as it is directly connected to Austrian legislation.

”Austrian Occupational Exposure Limits” is a list of Occupational exposure limits with maximum values for average concentrations of a chemical substance in a worker's breathing zone during a defined reference period. The list was originally obtained at BGBl. II Nr. 253/2001, with the most recent amendment being BGBl. II Nr. 156/2021. 

I have products on the list - what should I do?

If you have products on the list, you'll need to determine in your risk assessment of the products, whether the limit value is exceeded or not. As a first step, you can check the concentration level of the substance with the limit value. To identify the substance, you can visit the product's iSafe and find the substance under Restriction- and prohibition lists. Then check the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Section 3 or click on 'Show composition' at the bottom of iSafe to see the concentration of the substance in the chemical product.

To assess whether the limit is exceeded, knowledge of how to perform these measurements is required. If you are unsure about how to proceed, we recommend that you contact either your account manager or our EHS experts by emailing, and they will guide you further.
