Safety and responsibility
Safety is always our utmost priority and we act responsibly as a reliable part of society. This is enshrined by BASF in its corporate principles.
It means we bear responsibility for ensuring that our products are safe when used as intended and do not present a hazard to people and the environment. When used correctly, products containing nanoparticles do not present any health risks. This has been proved by all the investigations performed so far to evaluate the products, including those in accordance with the regulations and requirements of the applicable chemical legislation. The "nano" scale is not a hazard characteristic. Whether a substance presents a hazard depends on the substance itself and the type of exposure.
