International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health
OBJECTIVE: In order to identify users of PGME and potential exposures, a chemical registration database maintained in Switzerland was analysed. METHOD: The database contains information on the composition of products (qualitative and quantitative), the field of use, the year of registration and the domain of commercial applications (public or professional). RESULTS: Identification of potential exposures in Switzerland was carried out. Out of a total of 150,000 products, 2334 were found to contain PGME and most contained between 1% and 10% PGME. There was a great increase in the number of products declared between 1983 and 1991. The principal fields of use were in inks, varnishes and paints.
