ACGIH® Statement of Position

ACGIH® is not a standards setting body.

TLVs® and BEIs®–

  • Are an expression of scientific opinion.
  • Are not consensus standards.
  • Are based solely on health factors; it may not be economically or technically feasible to meet established TLVs® or BEIs®.
acgih statement of position1
ACGIH®Statement of Position

TLVs® and BEIs®–

  • Should NOT be adopted as standards without an analysis of other factors necessary to make appropriate risk management decisions.
  • Can provide valuable input into the risk characterization process. The full written Documentation for the numerical TLV® or BEI® should be reviewed.
