DEFINITION OF TERMS
A large number of abbreviations and acronyms appear on a MSDS. Some of these, which are commonly used, include the following:
CAS #: This is the Chemical Abstract Service Number that uniquely identifies each
constituent.
EXPOSURE LIMITS IN AIR:
CEILING LEVEL: The concentration that shall not be exceeded during any part of the
working exposure.
DFG MAK Germ Cell Mutagen Categories: 1: Germ cell mutagens that have been
shown to increase the mutant frequency in the progeny of exposed humans. 2: Germ cell
mutagens that have been shown to increase the mutant frequency in the progeny of
exposed mammals. 3A: Substances that have been shown to induce genetic damage in
germ cells of human of animals, or which produce mutagenic effects in somatic cells of
mammals in vivo and have been shown to reach the germ cells in an active form. 3B:
Substances that are suspected of being germ cell mutagens because of their genotoxic
effects in mammalian somatic cell in vivo; in exceptional cases, substances for which
there are no in vivo data, but that are clearly mutagenic in vitro and structurally related to
known in vivo mutagens. 4: Not applicable (Category 4 carcinogenic substances are
those with non-genotoxic mechanisms of action. By definition, germ cell mutagens are
genotoxic. Therefore, a Category 4 for germ cell mutagens cannot apply. At some time in
the future, it is conceivable that a Category 4 could be established for genotoxic
substances with primary targets other than DNA [e.g. purely aneugenic substances] if
research results make this seem sensible.) 5: Germ cell mutagens, the potency of which
is considered to be so low that, provided the MAK value is observed, their contribution to
genetic risk for humans is expected not to be significant.
DFG MAK Pregnancy Risk Group Classification: Group A: A risk of damage to the
developing embryo or fetus has been unequivocally demonstrated. Exposure of pregnant
women can lead to damage of the developing organism, even when MAK and BAT
(Biological Tolerance Value for Working Materials) values are observed. Group B:
Currently available information indicates a risk of damage to the developing embryo or
fetus must be considered to be probable. Damage to the developing organism cannot be
excluded when pregnant women are exposed, even when MAK and BAT values are
observed. Group C: There is no reason to fear a risk of damage to the developing
embryo or fetus when MAK and BAT values are observed. Group D: Classification in
one of the groups A–C is not yet possible because, although the data available may
indicate a trend, they are not sufficient for final evaluation.
IDLH: Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health. This level represents a concentration
from which one can escape within 30-minutes without suffering escape-preventing or
permanent injury.
LOQ: Limit of Quantitation.
MAK: Federal Republic of Germany Maximum Concentration Values in the workplace.
NE: Not Established. When no exposure guidelines are established, an entry of NE is
made for reference.
NIC: Notice of Intended Change.
