Possible health risks due to exposure to chromium-6 at tROM project Tilburg
Research by RIVM shows that the participants in the so-called tROM project, their supervisors and other people involved may have been exposed to chromium-6.
Health effects due to titanium nanoparticles in food and toothpaste cannot be excluded
Health effects due to exposure to titanium dioxide nanoparticles via food, food supplements and toothpaste cannot be excluded.
Tool for risk assessment of nanomaterials in cosmetics
Both regulators and manufacturers need to evaluate and manage consumer health risks that may be posed by the use of nanomaterials in cosmetics.
Nanotechnology increasingly used in medical devices
The application of nanotechnology to design and produce medical devices is increasing. RIVM provides an overview of nanotechnology enabled medical devices.
Cost-effective risk assessment of nanomaterials may be feasible
Companies, authorities and scientists can save time, money and test animals in the risk assessment of nanomaterials by using available data.
Innovation required in risk assessment of nanoparticles
The currently existing models and techniques provide insufficient certainties in the assessment of the harmfulness of nanoparticles and nanomaterials to people and the environment.
RIVM film about nanomaterials
RIVM contributes to the safe use of nanomaterials through research, alerts and policy consultations, and this work is demonstrated in a short informative film.
RIVM to research safe design for new nanoparticles
RIVM will be working alongside a consortium of 23 international partners on a safe design for ‘new’ nanoparticles.
