As of 1 July 2021 and the entry into force of the implementing decrees, the list of occupational diseases (OD) will include asthma caused at work by acrylates, pesticides, chloramine, chloramine-T, quaternary ammonium salts, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde and platinum salts.

This update is based on the recommendations of the Commission on Occupational Diseases, which relied on a background paper from the Working Environment Research Foundation. This document shows that there is a link between exposure to the substances mentioned and the development of asthma.
