Study finds EU regulatory framework ready for the next generation of nanomaterials

A study related to the “next generation” nanomaterials has been published.

The study, commissioned by the EU nanomaterials observatory, looked into “next generation” nanomaterials and whether the current terminology used in the EU chemicals regulations, as well as the implementation of the current legal requirements for identifying nanomaterials, are likely to pose technical challenges for these “next generation” materials.

This study has finally found that the current EU regulatory framework for characterising and identifying “next generation” nanomaterials is able to address the majority of them and that no significant changes will be needed in the near future.
