Titandioxid: Socio-ekonomisk effekt av klassificering Carcinogen Cat. 2

Konsultbyrån Risk&Policy Analysts (RPA) har publicerat rapporten 'Analysis of the socio-economic impacts of a harmonised classification of Carcinogen Category 2 for titanium dioxide'. Den sammanfattande slutsatsen av förslaget att klassificera pigmentet titandioxid som Carc cat. 2 är:

Classification of the substance as a suspected carcinogen fails to meet the requirement for proportionality; harmonised classification as a Carc Cat 2 is not necessary to achieve the objective of protecting the health of workers and consumers while it leads to highly disproportionate costs for society and stigmatisation of the substance irrespective of its form or route of potential exposure.
