Factsheets for identifying and substituting carcinogens

The “Fiches d’Aide au Répérage des Cancérogènes” (FAR) and the “Fiches d’Aide à la Substitution des Cancérogènes” (FAS) have been created by the French Prevention Network (Prevention Departments of Occupational health and pension insurance funds – the CARSATs- and INRS).

These factsheets, compiled by OSH and technology experts, are short summary reports which are continuously updated. The FAR focus on how to identify specific carcinogens at work and the FAS focus on substitution possibilities (FAS) for a particular process or substance used in a given context.

View a list of all factsheets on the INRS website (in French).
