Fourth NANoREG newsletter now available as free download(Nanowerk News) NANoREG is the first FP7 project to deliver the answers needed by regulators and legislators on EHS by linking them to a scientific evaluation of data and test methods.
Based on questions and requirements supplied by regulators and legislators, NANoREG will:
1) Provide answers and solutions from existing data, complemented with new knowledge;
2) Provide a tool box of relevant instruments for risk assessment, characterisation, toxicity testing and exposure measurements of manufactured nanomaterials;
3) Develop, for the long term, new testing strategies adapted to innovation requirements;
4) Establish a close collaboration among authorities, industry and science leading to efficient and practically applicable risk management approaches for Manufactured Nano Materials and products containing Manufactured Nano Materials.
|Recently the draft NANoREG 5th internal progress report has been published. The report covers the period 1 April 2015 – 30 September 2015; a period where the focus has been on the R&D work aimed at, among others, “testing the tests”, generating reliable and relevant data and evaluating these data in order to answer the regulatory needs and questions.|
|At the same time considerable effort has been made on “overarching topics” like standardised data logging, the development of a regulatory framework, answering the regulatory questions and creating a platform of support for the results of NANoREG.|
|This 4th NANoREG newsletter (pdf) gives an impression of the work that has been carried out and the results so far.|
