A report on “develop[ment of] innovative methodological approaches for detailed qualitative as well as quantitative characterization of workplace exposure to engineered nanomaterials”. [IRSST, 2017]
- Assessment of Personal Exposure to Airborne Nanomaterials. A summary of findings from the NanoIndEx project whose aim was to “scrutinise the instrumentation available for personal exposure assessment concerning their field readiness and usability.”. [NanoIndEx, 2016]
- Harmonized Tiered Approach to Measure and Assess the Potential Exposure to Airborne Emissions of Engineered Nano-Objects and their Agglomerates and Aggregates at Workplaces. A harmonized, tiered approach that is systematic, consistent, practical and flexible and that addresses the need for a methodology for conducting field-based workplace exposure measurement and assessment. [OECD WPMN, 2015]
- Formulating occupational exposure limits values (OELs) (Inhalation & dermal). Provides baseline occupational exposure limits for nanomaterials, including nanocellulose. [Scaffold SPD7, 2014]
