This public hearing was linked to the ongoing discussions on the legislative proposal amending Directive 2004/37/EC on the protection of workers from the risks related to exposure to carcinogens or mutagens at work (rapporteur Claude Rolin (EPP, FR). The presentation of the proposal by Commissioner Marianne Thyssen was followed by presentations of representatives from OSHA, social partners, and an academic expert, as well as an exchange of views with Members.

The aim of this hearing was a debate on the scientific and economic consideration underlying this important proposal and in particular on its expected implications for the main stakeholders concerned.
