SCOEL Discusses Nanomaterials during March Meeting

The European Commission's (EC) Scientific Committee on Occupational Exposure Limits (SCOEL) met on March 7-9, 2016. The meeting minutes include the following summary regarding SCOEL's discussion of nanomaterials:

- Several chemical agents proposed or envisaged to be addressed by SCOEL do concern or also concern the form as nanomaterial. SCOEL identified a group of scientists to organise a workshop or expert meeting in order to prepare for dealing with the subject in specific and take into account latest state-of-the-art. The lead is with MvT, who will organise the workshop/expert meeting in close collaboration with the Secretariat and the Board.

- An update was provided. In view of the enhanced needs for cooperation with [the European Chemicals Agency] and the tight schedule, the nanomaterials and [occupational safety and health] workshop will be planned for 2017.
