NANoREG – A common European approach to the regulatory testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials

The innovative and economic potential of Manufactured Nanomaterials (MNMs) is threatened by limited understanding of MNM safety aspects along the value chains. Substantial efforts have given insights in toxicity of and exposure to MNMs. However, today's knowledge is not comprehensive enough for regulatory purposes, answering open questions is urgently required. The outstanding approach of NANoREG will provide the right answers to Society, Industry and the National Regulation and Legislation Authorities.



Promoting the implementation of Safe by Design

ProSafe was designed to coordinate and support the aims of EU Member and associated states in their EU and international efforts (OECD, COR, EU-USA) regarding risk assessment, management and governance by streamlining data acquisition, collection and management on regulatory orientated toxicology testing of nanomaterials, exposure monitoring, LCA, and disposal and treatment of waste nanomaterials. Consideration is also given to regulatory policy developments on both the national and international level, including challenges raised by the convergence between nano and biotechnologies.
