European Chemicals Agency updates IUCLID user manual for nanomaterials
(Nanowerk News) IUCLID 5.4 enables registrants to select the form of the test material used in all study summaries reported in their dossiers and "Nanomaterial" is one of the options that can be selected.
The updated manual is expanding on options that were already available in previous IUCLID versions to indicate "nanomaterial" as the form of the substance in section 2.1 "Classification and labelling according to GHS" and in section 4.1 "Appearance/physical state/colour".
The manual also gives instructions on how to structure information on different forms of the registered substance in a consistent and cohererent manner.
The updated manual also includes references and links to recent Guidance updates for nanomaterials published on the ECHA website and links to recent reports from projects, such as the REACH Implementation Projects on Nanomaterials (RIP-oNs) and the OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN).
