DGUV Nano-Portal:

The Nano-Portal "Safe Handling of Nanomaterials" of the DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance) is available in English since January 2017. The platform is an encompassing information and learning platform on the topics of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies. The portal was developed by the Innovation Society, St. Gallen (Switzerland) on behalf of DGUV and the related Social Accident Insurance Institutions. The Nano-Portal contains relevant information and documents and five interactive Nanorama-tools. Two Nanoramas (Production and Laboratory) are already available in English and German.

Which are the relevant regulations and which guidelines are in place for nanomaterials? All these and further questions are answered by the Nano-Portal of the DGUV...
