List of Undesirable Substances 2004


The new, revised LOUS is now available. Compared to the previous lists, the criteria for the selection of substances for the list have been changed. This means that a number of chemical substances or substance groups are no longer on the LOUS. These substances/substance groups are listed in Appendix D. A number of criteria are no longer used in the systematic selection. These are listed in Appendix E. As a consequence of the new criteria, a number of substances are on the list for the first time. These are listed in Appendix F. The new selection criteria and the reason for removing from the list some of the original criteria, and consequently substances and substance groups, are described in further detail in the chapter on selection criteria.
