Toxicity of engineered Nanomaterials


This factsheet intends to inform interested lay persons who engage in the field of risk governance for nanotechnologies, including standardization, labelling, or regulation in a European context. It reviews currently available knowledge on nano-toxicology, in particular exposure assessment and hazard assessment of engineered nanomaterials (ENM). The factsheet aggregates information gathered from scientific literature and attempts a preliminary interpretation of the status-quo in nano-toxicological risk.
