ECHA has launched calls for evidence on cadmium and its inorganic compounds and on asbestos. The aim is to get information on exposure, health effects, toxicology, epidemiology and modes of action. For cadmium and its inorganic compounds, also information on uses is requested. Any other relevant information is also welcome. The European Commission has asked ECHA to review the existing limits of these substances.The information will help ECHA to draft the scientific reports related to exposure limits at the workplace.
The deadline for comments is 2 June 2020.
- For cadmium: The Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (Directive 2004/37/EC)
- For asbestos: Substances under Directive 2009/148/EC
