Subcommittee on the Classification of Carcinogenic Substances

The task of the Subcommittee on the Classification of Carcinogenic Substances is to assess whether substances to which employees can be exposed at their respective workplaces are carcinogenic. This is done by classifying the substances according to the new classification system based on EU Directives.

The membership of the committee may differ from one advice to another. Because a permanent committee addresses more than one topic, potential conflicts of interests of committee members will be re-evaluated at the start of each advisory process.
