ISO 2014: Occupational risk management applied to engineered nanomaterials - Control banding

ISO_200This ISO Technical Standard describes the use of a control banding approach for controlling the risks associated with occupational exposures to nano-objects, and their aggregates and agglomerates greater than 100 nm (NOAA), even if knowledge regarding their toxicity and quantitative exposure estimations is limited or lacking.

The ultimate purpose of control banding is to control exposure in order to prevent any possible adverse effects on workers' health. The control banding tool described here is specifically designed for inhalation control. Some guidance for skin and eye protection is given in ISO/TS 12901‑1.
