Chemical Agents and Carcinogens Code of Practice 2021


The revised Code of Practice (Chemical Agents & Carcinogens)  supports the transposition of EU Directive (EU) 2019/1831 which introduces new limit values for ten substances and these are included and highlighted  in Schedule 1 of the CoP. Schedule 3 of the revised Code of Practice indicates proposed new Occupational Exposure Limit Value (OELV)s or changes to  the existing OELV to be included in the next Code of Practice. Schedule 3 also highlights substances currently under review by the European Commission. 

The HSA advises employers who use or generate hazardous substances in their workplace to review their current chemical risk assessments and control measures to ensure compliance with any revised OELVs listed.
