Norway Requires Information on Norwegian Product Register Chemicals in Nanoform

On January 9, 2013, the Norwegian Climate and Pollution Agency (Klif) posted a notice concerning the annual update of information and mandatory reporting of quantities for chemicals for 2012 to the Norwegian Product Register. See http://www.klif.no/no/english/english/Whats-new/Annual-update-for-2012-for-information-to-the-Norwegian-Product-Register-/ The Product Register is the central register for chemical products in Norway, and there are currently approximately 25,000 products registered. According to Klif's notice, changes include adding a "NANO box" that registrants should mark if the chemical contains nanomaterials. The January 7, 2013, letter sent to registrants states:

Physical data that may be of significance when assessing the dangerous properties of chemicals must be declared under section 21 of the Norwegian Regulations relating to classification and labelling of dangerous chemicals. Details are given in guidelines on declaration. The definition of nano materials is given in the recommendation of the Commission by 18 October 2011. Registration of substances in nano form in the Product Register will provide better knowledge about where and how nano materials are used. The information will be used by the authorities in their work to protect human health and the environment.

For all your mandatory declared chemicals we ask you to provide information that is already known by the producer about substances on nano scale. This means that if your chemical contains a substance/substances in nano form, you should mark this in the appropriate box on the enclosed list. In addition you have to identify which constituent that is in nano form in the same box. During 2013 you will have to update the composition for all your mandatorily declared chemicals that contain substances in nano form.
