In 2013 German authorities adopted an occupational exposure limit (MAK-Wert) of 0,3 ppm in the TRGS 900 for MEKO (Methylethylketoxime / 2-Butanonoxime).
In 2014 MEKO was added to the CoRAP list and the BAuA (Federal Institute for Occupational Saftey and Health in Germany) publishes a "Substance Evaluation Conclusion Document". In this document BAuA proposes a revised classification of MEKO, as CARC. CAT. 1B / H 350 (Can cause cancer).
In August 2015 CEPE recommends their members to start looking for MEKO replacements with a better hazard profile.
Since second half of 2015 Valirex Noval NEXT a suitable MEKO substitute belongs to Umicore's product portfolio.
