Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances (TRGS)

Selected TRGS

The Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances (TRGS) reflect the state of technology, occupational safety and health and occupational hygiene as well as other definite knowledge relating to activities involving hazardous substances including their classification and labelling.

The Committee on Hazardous Substances (AGS) establishes the rules and adapts them to the current state of development accordingly.

These English translations of technical rules are inofficial versions. Mandatory are the current German versions.
