“There are indicators that are considered to reduce the likelihood of adverse effects of the ENM that are based on the specific exposure scenario under consideration and/or on loss of nano-properties. A complete loss of nano-properties will allow for reliance on a conventional risk assessment and the nano-specific risk assessment procedure would no longer be required. The following parameters may indicate a loss of nanoproperties:
