Titanium dioxide in nanoform: ANSES defines a Reference Toxicological Value (TRV) for chronic inhalation exposure



Titanium Dioxide in nano form is used in many industrial and commercial applications. As part of its national mission to develop reference health values, ANSES was asked to define a Reference Toxicological Value (TRV) for Titanium Dioxide in nanoparticulate form (TiO 2 -NP). Following an in-depth analysis of all available toxicity data, the Agency recommends a chronic inhalation TRV for the P25 form of TiO 2 -NP of 0.12 μg.m -3.

Based on this reference value, health risk assessments will be carried out as part of plant and industrial site management actions in France. This is also the first VTR developed for a nanomaterial in France.
