MAK value

The "maximum workplace concentration" is the maximum permissible concentration of a substance (gas, vapour, suspended matter) at which no damage to health is to be expected, even if one is exposed to the concentration for 8 hours a day or a maximum of 40 hours a week. Since 2005 there is a new limit value concept with the designations AGW (workplace limit value) and BGW (biological limit value). Such limit values also apply to winemaking, for example with regard to sterilisation with ozone. See also regarding substance limits under ADI (acceptable daily intake).
