Letter to the editor for the evaluation of hydrocarbon solvent mixtures

The legally effective occupational exposure limit values (OELs) for the evaluation of hydrocarbon mixtures in Germany using the RCP methodology are published in the Joint Ministerial Gazette (GMBl, date: 30.11.2017). FoBiG carried out the revision and based on this work commented on the publication by McKee and colleagues "The reciprocal calculation procedure for occupational exposure limits for hydrocarbon solvents: an update" and compared them with the standards in force in Germany. The letter to the Editor is published here.
