The GESTIS analytical methods database has been thoroughly updated and technically improved. It provides access – in English – to analysis methods from a number of EU Member States, the USA and Canada. Users are directed to suitable, validated methods for the analysis of chemical substances at workplaces. The data comprise lists of analytical methods for 130 substances that have been identified as being particularly relevant in terms of their incidence at workplaces. Revision has now been completed for the first 50 substances. All methods have been evaluated in accordance with the requirements of European standards. Experts from ten European institutes were involved in creating the database funded primarily by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). Revision of the database is now essentially the task of the experts in CEN TC 137 – Assessment of workplace exposure to chemical and biological agents.
