At request of the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, the Dutch Expert 2 Committee on Occupational Safety (DECOS), a committee of the Health Council of the 3 Netherlands, derives so-called health-based calculated occupational cancer risk values 4 (HBC-OCRVs) associated with excess cancer risk levels of 4 per 1,000 and 4 per 5 100,000 as a result of working life exposure to substances. It concerns substances 6 which are classified by the Health Council or the European Union in category 1A or 1B, 7 and which are considered stochastic genotoxic carcinogens. For the estimation, the 8 Committee uses the Guideline for calculating carcinogenic risks of the Health Council.1 9 In this report the Committee evaluates the possibility to establish such estimates for 10 diesel engine exhaust. Diesel engine exhaust is a complex mixture of substances in 11 gaseous and particulate phase, which is produced by the combustion of diesel fuels.
