NanoRiskCat - A Conceptual Decision Support Tool for Nanomaterials

In this project funded by the Danish EPA the Technical University of Denmark and National Research Centre for the Working Environment has initiated the development of a screening tool called NanoRiskCat (NRC) for the evaluation of exposure and hazard of nanomaterials contained in products for professional and private use. The aim was to identify, categorize and rank the possible exposure and hazards associated with a nanomaterial in a product. NanoRiskCat is using a stepwise approach based on existing data on the conventional form of the chemical as well as the data that may exist on the nanoform.
