Mandatory naming of nanoforms for REACH registrations

Companies must provide a name for the nanoforms or sets of nanoforms of their substance when registering nanomaterials under the REACH Regulation. This will make it easier to refer to registered nanoforms in regulatory decisions and safety data sheets.

The change took effect on the 2nd of November following the new release of IUCLID. Companies that have already registered their nanoforms do not need to undertake any immediate action but will be required to provide a name in the next update of their registration dossier.

More information could be found in the guidance and support on nanomaterials under REACH.
