The EU Court now agreed. The EU Commission and the responsible European chemical agency had made an obvious mistake in assessing the reliability of the study, on which the classification was based, the judges criticized.

Not all relevant points of view takes into account

such a classification must be based on reliable and recognized examinations. According to the court, this was not the case here: In the underlying study, the degree of lung overload with titanium dioxide particles was not determined correctly, since not all relevant aspects had been incorporated into the calculation. For example, special properties of the particles were not sufficiently taken into account. Therefore, the chemical agency had drawn false conclusions that the EU Commission had taken over.

In addition, a substance may only be classified as carcinogenic if it actually has the “intrinsic property” to generate cancer. Titandioxide should therefore be carcinogenic. Here, on the other hand, there is only the risk of cancer, according to the court, only in connection with certain lung titanium dioxide particles if they are available in a certain state of aggregation, a certain form, a certain size and a certain amount. Accordingly, this is not sufficient for the classification as carcinogenic.
