ECFIA’s position has been that an occupational exposure limit of 0.5 f/ml is appropriate for all HTIW. However, for ASW/RCF some countries (e.g. France and Norway) have set OELs as low as 0.1 f/ml. In 2012, SCOEL – the EC committee on occupational exposure limits – recommended an OEL for ASW/RCF of 0.3 f/ml. This issue is a matter of ongoing discussion within Europe.
