Results of an intervention of medical surveillance are reported. Medical surveillance was performed, from the Renam COR Basilicata-Puglia, in favour of 67 workers ex exposed to asbestos of the firm ex-Materit of Ferrandina that produced manufactured articles in cement-asbestos. The actual normative (art 29 DL 277/91) foresees that the competent plant physician informed the workers about the necessities to undergo to sanitary checks after the cessation of the activity, nevertheless the law doesn't establish that whom owes to make load of the medical surveillance. Cor, as Regional Reference Center, like in DPMC 308/2002, can guarantee definition of guide lines for uniform approach to regional level of all the figures involved in the management of the ex-exposed worker problem, in clinician and legal point of view and in the diffusion of the information (general practitioners, physicians operating in prevention services (SPESAL), competent plant physicians, hospital physicians and experts, labour unions).
