Together with the “Arbeitsgruppe Luftanalysen” der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, working group “Analyses of hazardous substances in air” of the German Research Foundation), the “AG Analytik” der Deutschen Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung (“Analysis” working group of the German Statutory Accident Insurance (DGUV); responsible: Social Accident Insurance Institution for the raw materials and chemical industry (BG RCI)) established a quality assurance concept for the development of monitoring methods. The “AG Analytik” is responsible for compiling the monitoring methods of the DGUV Information 213-5xx series for substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic for reproduction (CMR substances), while the DFG “Arbeitsgruppe Luftanalysen” publishes monitoring methods for the remaining substances.
