ANSES Opinion April 2014

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) have published an opinion on the assessment of the risks associated with nanomaterials- issues and update of current knowledge. The opinion follows an internal request in 2012 for an update of current knowledge and review of the "key" issues relating to the assessment of risks associated with nanomaterials to human health and the environment.

 

The expert appraisal of the ANSES Working Group on "Nanomaterials and health – food, environment, work" was carried out by the Expert Committee (CES) on "Assessment of the risks related to physical agents, new technologies and development areas" and provided the ANSES working group with recommendations.


These recommendations are within three key areas:

  1. Research
  2. Worker exposure to manufactured nanomaterials or products containing them
  3. Exposure to products containing manufactured nanomaterials
