Biomonitoring Information System

Introduction to the Biomonitoring Information System

The Biomonitoring Information System of the BAuA has supported medical officers and other people who work in the field of occupational safety with their research into information about hazardous substances and the suitable methods of measurement and analysis for many years.

The Biomonitoring Information System (available on our German Website) provides the following information regarding the data appertaining to a particular hazardous substance:

  • The investigative parameters of biological materials and their corresponding methods of measurement
  • Values for the assessment of measured results in the area of biomonitoring
  • Offers for the external quality assurance of biomonitoring analyses

The key sources of information that have been included so far are available on our German website under "Aktualität und Datenquellen".

The data basis is being added to on a continuous basis; however, the variety of substances and sources and limitations to copyright for specific original sources make it highly likely that it will never be complete.
