With the rapidly growing use of nanomaterials, how to bridge the gap between current research knowledge and regulatory needs?
NanoFATE was part of the NanoSafety Cluster, as one of the European Commission FP7 projects addressing the relatively under-researched area of safety and hazard of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in aquatic and soil ecosystems. NanoFATE work was geared in particular to showing how safety testing and hazard assessment as well as existing regulation (REACH, TSCA) can be made “fit for nano” with minimum changes.
Read our Regulatory Input Short Report surveying the diverse forms of input provided by NanoFATE to the regulatory debate on assuring the safety of engineered nanomaterials. Learn of our input to ECHA, to the OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials, and our stakeholder workshop experience.
