This criteria document for the establishment of an occupational exposure limit value for 1.3-butadiene was provided to the European Commission by the European centre for ecotoxicology and toxicology of chemicals, Ecetoc, Brussels. The objective of the report was to collect a broad spectrum of relevant data on 1.3-butadiene chemistry, production, occurrence in the workplace, toxicology, and evaluation of existing occupational exposure limits, where known. All data are interpreted with respect to 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 agents at work.
