Indicative Occupational Exposure Limit Values (IOELVs) are concentrations of a hazardous substance in air proposed by the European Commission under the framework of the Chemical Agents Directive (CAD). Member States are obliged to introduce an occupational exposure limit (OEL) for these substances in accordance with national legislation and practice that takes the IOELV into account.
The first IOELV directive is due to be implemented by 31 December 2001 and this document sets out the Health and Safety Commission's proposals for implementing 29 of the substances in this directive. We would like your comments on them. A form is included at the back of this consultative document to help you to do this. It summarises the questions set out in the main text.
