The directive has the following consequences:
- For 20 of the chemical substances, the directive sets lower limit values than the Danish. This means that the Danish limit values must be reduced accordingly.
- For six of the chemical substances, the directive's limit values are in line with the Danish.
- For five of the chemical substances, the directive sets a higher limit value than the Danish. For these substances, the lower Danish limit values are maintained.
The new limit values are not expected to have business or administrative consequences. When companies comply with the already existing occupational safety requirements, it will also be sufficient to comply with the new limit values.
