The classification of certain forms of titanium dioxide was published on 18.02.2020 as suspected of causing cancer by inhalation. The hazard category Carc. 2 with the hazard statement H351 (Inhalation) was assigned in the Regulation (EU) 2020/217 (14th ATP) amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation). In addition, provisions have been made for the classification of mixtures as well as regulations for the labelling of certain mixtures containing titanium dioxide with European EUH-phrases. The regulations will apply after an eighteen-month transitional period from 01.10.2021. However, they can already be applied now.
