I have heard that the term OSHA-CEIL stands for OSHA-Ceiling. Or the maximum allowable exposure limit. These are the maximum tolerable fumes before a health risk is determined. Not sure what the NE stands for, but I would bet it has something to do with concentration.

Thank you so much!!! Abbreviations in some materials made me confused, and I found its really boring to guess what they refer to.
