Danish Consumer Council and Danish Ecological Council Launch Nano Database

The Danish Consumer Council and the Danish Ecological Council, in cooperation with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) Environment, have developed a database, available at http://nano.taenk.dk/welcome-to-the-database , intended to help consumers identify more than 1,200 products that may contain nanomaterials. The database is an inventory of products that contain nanomaterials or are marketed with the word "nano." The website asks users to help "improve and expand" the database "by telling us about products that claim to be ‘nano' or you think may contain nano materials." Users are instructed to:

-- Search shop shelves and find products, where the word "Nano" appears on the packaging or on the product itself;

-- Note down product name, manufacturer, address, and website;

-- Take a picture of the product;

-- Check the Nano Database to see if the product you have found has already been reported to the Danish Consumer Council; and

-- Fill out the form on the website.

After a report is received, it will be forwarded to DTU Environment, "who will examine the reported product and in turn authorize its publication in the database."
