The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has been requested by the European Commission to provide recommendations on occupational exposure limits (OELs) for lead (and its compounds) and diisocyanates.

In January of this year, an agreement was signed by both the European Commission and the ECHA to provide recommendations on OELs that protect workers exposed to hazardous chemicals. The agreement requires ECHA to assess four to five OELs per year from 2020 onwards.
