NanoDefine Will Hold Workshop on Measurement and Classification of Nanomaterials According to the EC Definition

On October 24, 2017, NanoDefine will hold a one-day workshop in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. See http://www.nanodefine.eu/index.php/news/120-invitation-to-the-2nd-nanodefine-industry-focused-workshop The main purpose of the workshop is to provide a practical demonstration of newly developed measurement techniques to end-users who have to implement the European Commission's (EC) recommendation on the definition of a nanomaterial (2011/696/EU). NanoDefine experts have developed a wide panel of new validated measurement methods, techniques, instruments, and software to classify existing and new advanced materials, including a two-tiered analytical approach consisting of: (1) rapid and cost-effective screening methods; and (2) more in-depth confirmatory methods. In particular, according to NanoDefine, the NanoDefiner e-Tool will help practitioners to determine reliably "whether a material or product is or contains nano." The workshop will address the following questions:

- How to address the analytical challenges caused by the EC definition;
- How to handle the diversity and complexity of commercially relevant products and materials that have to be classified; and
- How to meet the needs of industry for quick and unambiguous measurement tools.

Registration is free but spaces are limited. According to the May-June 2017 issue of the NanoDefine Bulletin, an open beta version of the NanoDefiner e-Tool will be available online later in 2017. See http://www.nanodefine.eu/index.php/news/118-2nd-nanodefine-bulletin Users will be invited to test the beta version and to provide feedback that will be used to prepare the final public version.
