Author information

  • 1Federal Environment Agency, Berlin, Germany.


In Germany, the Human Biomonitoring Commission of the German Federal Environment Agency was established in 1992 to develop scientifically based criteria for the application of human biomonitoring (HBM). The goal is to clarify fundamental and practical issues related to HBM. Following the assessment of pollutants in body fluids, the commission derives two different kinds of guideline values: reference values and HBM values (HBM I and HBM II values). This article gives a review of the current reference values, HBM values, and the work of the German Human Biomonitoring Commission.
