ECHA Announces Updated Guidance for Registering Nanomaterials

On April 30, 2012, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced the availability of three appendices, updating Chapters R.7a, R.7b, and R.7c of the Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment (IR & CSA). See http://echa.europa.eu/web/guest/view-article/-/journal_content/3df5b7b9-a36d-4e74-811b-3aeee23366f8 ECHA prepared a draft revision of the Guidance, based on the outcome of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Implementation Projects on Nanomaterials (RIP-oN) 2 final report. ECHA updated the Guidance via a fast-track procedure, and states that this was justified on the basis that the final RIP-oN 2 report had already been the subject of consultation with relevant stakeholders. Its content could, therefore, be considered as reflecting a consensus. Furthermore, according to ECHA, the update "needed to be made urgently in order to allow publication of the guidance as soon as possible and well in advance of the next REACH registration deadline," May 30, 2013. The updated Guidance provides tailored advice to prepare registrations for substances in the nanoform.
