Belgium Modifies Royal Decree Regarding the Placement on the Market of Substances Manufactured at the Nanoscale, Requires Registration of Mixtures

Belgium published in the January 15, 2018, Official Gazette an amendment to the Royal Decree regarding the placement on the market of substances manufactured at the nanoscale. See http://www.ejustice.just.fgov.be/cgi/article_body.pl?language=fr&pub_date=2018-01-15&numac=2018010068&caller=summary Under the amendment, cosmetic products as defined by the July 2012 Belgian Royal Decree on cosmetic products are exempt from registration, and provisions regarding the registration of mixtures entered into force on January 1, 2018. As reported in our October 27, 2014, blog item (see https://nanotech.lawbc.com/2014/10/belgium-publishes-decree-on-the-nanomaterial-register/ ), substances defined as nanomaterials, and mixtures containing them, must be registered if at least 100 grams of the substance or mixture is placed on the market during the year covered by the registration, and if the entity putting the substance on the market produced the substance or mixture, or puts it on the market for professional users only. Biocidal products, medicines, food and feed, food contact materials, and pigments are excluded from the scope of the Royal Decree.
