Workplace exposure. Assessment of exposure by inhalation of nano-objects and their aggregates and agglomerates

Scope
This European Standard provides guidelines to assess workplace exposure by inhalation of nano-objects and their aggregates and agglomerates (NOAA). It contains guidance on the sampling and measurement strategies to adopt and methods for data evaluation.
While the focus of this document is on the assessment of nano-objects, the approach is also applicable for exposure to the associated aggregates and agglomerates, i.e. NOAA, and particles released from nanocomposites and nano-enabled products.


The standards writing body responsible for this document in Finland is Kemesta.
