EC JRC publish assessment of collected information concerning experience with the nanomaterial definition

Date: Wednesday, October 01, 2014

The European Commission (EC) Joint Research Centre (JRC) has published the second part of its report ‘Towards a review of the EC Recommendation for a definition of the term nanomaterial’, which focuses on the ‘Assessment of collected information concerning the experience with the definition’.

The report provides the JRC assessment of feedback on the experiences of stakeholders with the EC nanomaterial definition, published in 2011 (EC Recommendation 2011/696/EU). The report is a follow-up report of the previous JRC report, which compiled feedback collected by JRC in 2013 and early 2014, partly through a dedicated survey. Based on the current report, JRC will prepare a set of recommendations for the revision of the EC nanomaterial definition, as part of the review process foreseen in the 2011 EC Recommendation.
