DOCUMENT TEXT

Short description  At the request of the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, the Dutch
Expert Committee on Occupational Standards (DECOS), a committee of the
Health Council of the Netherlands, derives so-called health-based calculated –
occupational cancer risk values (HBC-OCRVs) associated with excess mortality
levels of 4 per 1,000 and 4 per 100,000 as a result of working life exposure to
substances, that have been classified by the European Union or the DECOS as
genotoxic carcinogen. In this report the committee presents such estimates for
acrylamide. For the estimation, the committee used the method described in the
report ‘Calculating cancer risk due to occupational exposure to genotoxic carcinogens’.
