Member States vote to amend REACH Annexes to address nanoforms

The European Commission published a draft Regulation to amend the REACH Annexes. This is the result of the REACH Committee’s vote to amend REACH Annexes to explicitly address nanoforms of substances. The new requirements include defining and characterising the nanoforms of substances, as well as ensuring that human health and specific environmental information is relevant. The draft regulation is now subject to a three-month scrutiny by the Parliament and Council before being adopted by the Commission.
