General Court annuls harmonised classification of titanium dioxide as carcinogenic

On 23 November 2022, in its judgment in joined cases T-279/20, T-283/20 and T-288/20, the General Court considered that the Commission made a manifest error in its assessment of the reliability and acceptability of the study on which the classification was based. It also found that the Commission infringed the criterion according to which that classification can relate only to a substance that has the intrinsic property to cause cancer.
