Contents With regard to TiO2, only the respirable particles of TiO2 (diameter smaller than 10 µm) will be classified as suspected carcinogen. In addition, the introduction of a note is proposed to limit the classification of mixtures to the ones placed on the market in powder form with a diameter smaller than 10 µm and if they contain 1% or more of such small TiO2 particles. Liquid mixtures (e.g. paints) as well as solid mixtures will not have to be classified. For such non-classified mixtures, the addition of a sentence on the label is proposed: 'Warning! Hazardous respirable droplets/dust may be formed when sprayed/used. Do not breathe spay or mist/dust).
