Abstract

This criteria document for the establishment of an occupational exposure limit value for 1,1,1-trichloroethane was prepared by the Danish Toxicology Institute on behalf of the European Commission.
The objective of the report was to collect a broad spectrum of relevant data on 1,1,1-trichloroethane chemistry, production, occurrence in the workplace, toxicology, and evaluation of existing occupational exposure limits, where known. All data are interpreted with respect to the human health risk and occupational exposure, and are summarized at the end of the report.
This criteria document will be used in the preparation of legislation on 'limit values' for the protection of workers from risks related to the exposure to chemical, physical and biological agents at work. .
