EU-Projekts "NanoSupport

Until now the European chemical regulation REACH is only applicable for nanomaterials in a few cases although this inclusion of nanomaterials could have a positive impact on health, environment and society. That states the latest report of a study conducted by the EU Project NanoSupport that was commissioned by the European Commission
In 2012 the DG Environment of the European Commission launched the NANO SUPPORT" project (Scientific technical support on assessment of nanomaterials in REACH registration dossiers and adequacy of available information) to generate Scientific and technical support for the assessment of nanomaterials under REACH.
In a first step, EU experts compiled a list of 21 possible actions on how to integrate nanomaterials in REACH of which 12 are already implemented in the current reach dossiers. The latest report now describes the examination and evaluation of a possible impact for companies, consumers, human health and the environment if the other nine amendments should be implemented as well
