Subject background

Scientific evidence indicates that inhalation of nanomaterials is more hazardous than inhalation of larger particles with the same chemical composition. At the same time, there is accumulating evidence that there is occupational exposure to nanomaterials in the Nordic countries, and that the exposure levels exceed proposed nano-specific occupational exposure levels.
