Abstract: Methods for assessing occupational exposure to toxic
chemicals have been developed semi-independently by a number of standards
organizations and regulatory authorities in Europe and beyond. Few of
these have been systematically reviewed against Comité Europeán
de Normalisation (CEN) criteria for accuracy and reliability. Some of
these methods have been complied into indexes, either in hard copy or
on the Internet, but existing indices are incomplete. There is a clear
need for the harmonization and validation of these methods and for a
full compendium of available methods and their validation status, while
avoiding duplication of essentially equivalent procedures. Many of the
methods are accessible on the Internet, so that in such instances the
compendium need not contain full details of the methods themselves but
can provide links to the pertinent web sites.
