Summary

The expert meeting on Inhalation Toxicity Testing for Nanomaterials was held on 19-20 October 2011 in The Hague, hosted by the Netherlands, with the aim of discussing the results of the OECD Sponsorship Programme (under the responsibility of SG3) on this specific topic and addressing issues relevant to inhalation toxicity. Fifty experts from the WPMN as well as the OECD Working Group of the National Coordinators for the Test Guidelines programme (WNT) participated in the meeting. This document is the meeting report.

This document includes summaries and recommendations from each of the presentations (Annex II) as well as suggested revisions to the OECD Test Guidelines (TGs 403, TG412, TG413 and TG436), the Guidance Document on Acute Inhalation Toxicity Testing and the Preliminary Guidance Notes on Sample Preparation and Dosimetry for the Safety Testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials. It also includes the meeting agenda (Annex I), and the Participants list (Annex III).
