Biocides as a group are a common cause of occupational asthma and are present in many products and are often not included in the product labelling. Many cause occupational asthma, glutaraldehyde was probably the most common and has been withdrawn from sale at least in some countries.

Oasys Notifications for Biocides

The Oasys Audit scheme started midway through 2010 and collects agents typed in through the Oasys program. The years before 2010 show old data entered during 2010 or later and are likely to have many fewer notifications. We expect Oasys to become more widely adopted as time goes by so increasing notifications does not necessarily mean an increasing problem.
