Nanomaterials: Updated Dossiers Required

The Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) has published the results of its seven-year test program for nanomaterials. The program covers 100 chemical tests and more than 780 studies on the special characteristics of the following substances:

  • Fullerenes
  • Single-walled ans multiwalled carbon nanotubes
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Dendrimers
  • Silicon dioxide (six different forms)
  • Nanoclay
  • Titanium dioxide (six different forms)
  • Cerium dioxide
  • Zinc oxide

The leaders of the OECD emphasize that the tests for inspecting and evaluating conventional substances can, in general, be applied to nanomaterials. Of course, they must be modified to meet the specific requirements of nanomaterials. The ECHA therefore requests managers of all the companies involved to update their dossiers.

Does your company deal with nanomaterials? Do you need legal security when dealing with these substances? If so, please contact us at reach@kft.de.
