Excerpt from "Carcinogen status of titanium dioxide relative to OSHA Standards [1910.1200]"
This is in response to your letter of October 15, requesting information about the carcinogen status of titanium dioxide (TiO2) relative to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. From a regulatory standpoint OSHA does not regulate TiO2 as a carcinogen. The permissible exposure limit for TiO2 is 15mg/m3, as total dust, expressed as an 8-hour time-weighted average. However, under the Hazard Communication standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200, the material safety data sheet must convey the fact that TiO2 is a potential carcinogen to rats for hazard communication purposes.
