Biomonitoring Information System

BAuA's Biomonitoring Information System has supported medical officers and other people working in the field of occupational safety with their research into information about hazardous substances and the suitable methods of measurement and analysis for many years.

The Biomonitoring Information System (available on our German Website) provides the following information regarding the data associated with a particular hazardous substance:

  • The test parameters of biological materials and their corresponding methods of measurement
  • Values for the assessment of biomonitoring results
  • Services for the external quality assurance of biomonitoring analyses

The key sources of information that have been included so far are available on our German website under "Aktualität und Datenquellen".

The data is continually supplemented; however, the variety of substances, sources and limitations to copyright for specific original sources make it highly likely that it will never be complete.
