Sub-report no. 2 from the project "Consumer exposure and risk assessment of nanomaterials in products on the Danish market"
Under the Agreement "Better Control of Nanomaterials" (“Bedre styr på nanomaterialer”), the Danish EPA has commissioned a number of projects aiming to investigate and generate new knowledge on the presence of nanomaterials in products on the Danish market and assess the possible associated risks to consumers and the environment. This report is part of a series of four from a project which addresses consumer exposure and risk assessment of nanomaterials in products on the Danish market.
The consumer is potentially exposed to nanomaterials in their final, intended use, i.e. when the nanomaterials are part of a matrix.
This report focuses on the hazard of nano¬materials when part of a consumer matrix. However, free nanomaterials may be liberated during the use phase and therefore the hazard of pristine nanomaterials is also described. Download
