Update of the reciprocal calculation procedure (RCP)

The RCP was developed to establish occupational exposure limits (OEL) for refined hydrocarbon solvent vapour mixtures (Pflaumbaum et al., 2008a,b) and will now be revised by FoBiG in a project funded by the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV). In cooperation with other committees, manufacturers and experts of the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the DGUV (IFA) current hydrocarbon group guidance values will be revisited and, if required, new groups will be established having adapted the group guidance values. Interested stakeholders, which might probably hold relevant data are welcome to contact us in order to introduce their data into the upcoming assessment.
