Occupational Exposure Limit proposals for fungal alpha-amylase in The Netherlands

Position Paper

Fedima and AMFEP (Association of Manufacturers and Formulators of Enzyme Products) co-developed a position paper in 2018 on Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) Proposals for Fungal Alpha-amylase in the Netherlands. In the paper the associations try to explain that the OEL proposal of 60 ng/m3 meets the basic science-based requirements for establishing an OEL where workers’ risk is well managed, and it is already showing its feasibility throughout EU in terms of a DMEL value. Hence AMFEP and FEDIMA strongly propose that this limit is also adopted as the OEL for fungal alpha-amylase in the Netherlands.
