ECHA Will Hold Webinar on REACH Registration Dossiers for Nanomaterials and Creates Nanomaterials Working Group

On October 30, 2012, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) will hold a webinar entitled "How to ensure the safe use of nanomaterials under REACH Part I: Characterisation of nanoforms of substances in registration dossiers." See https://echa-events.webex.com/mw0306lc/mywebex/default.do?nomenu=true&siteurl=echa-events&service=6&main_url=https%3A%2F%2Fecha-events.webex.com%2Fec0605lc%2Feventcenter%2Fevent%2FeventAction.do%3FtheAction%3Ddetail%26confViewID%3D1115862367%26siteurl%3Decha-events%26%26%26 According to ECHA, the webinar will provide information to registrants on the type of information to be included in a Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) registration dossier for a substance with nanoform(s). In addition, on October 17, 2012, ECHA announced publication of a new web page on nanomaterials under REACH and the Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) regulation. See http://echa.europa.eu/chemicals-in-our-life/nanomaterials According to ECHA, the page "will provide advice to registrants that wish to register nanomaterials and inform about" ECHA's latest activities concerning nanomaterials. The web page states that, in October 2012, ECHA created a nanomaterials working group "to discuss scientific and technical questions relevant to REACH and CLP processes and to provide recommendations on strategic issues." The working group is an informal advisory group consisting of experts from Member States, the European Commission, ECHA, and accredited stakeholder organizations, "with the mandate to ‘Provide informal advice on any scientific and technical issues regarding implementation of REACH and CLP legislation in relation to nanomaterials.'" ECHA states that the working group also "aims to facilitate discussions with industry regarding its experience gained in documenting intrinsic properties of the nano-forms of substances using recent methodologies and its obligations towards fulfilling REACH requirements."
