Amendments to the European Worker Protection Directive to be implemented by 2006 will replace the existing European Reference Method MDHS39/4 Asbesto fibres in air, with the WHO method.

The updated method has been included to allow analysts to become familiar and train with the new method. MDHS39/4 should still be used until the new EU directive is implemented.
