EC Scientific Committee Memorandum on Relevance, Adequacy, and Quality of Data in Safety Dossiers on Nanomaterials Available for Comment

The European Commission (EC) Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) "Memorandum on Relevance, Adequacy, and Quality of Data in Safety Dossiers on Nanomaterials" is available for comment. See http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/consumer_safety/docs/sccs_o_142.pdf The SCCS states that the current memorandum is intended to highlight the main considerations in relation to the relevance, adequacy, and quality of the data presented in safety dossiers on nanomaterials. The SCCS also intends the memorandum "to provide further guidance and clarity to future applicants so that preparation and evaluation of the safety dossiers can proceed without an undue burden on the part of either the applicants or the evaluators in the Committee." The conclusion states that the relevance, adequacy, and quality of the data presented "are of utmost importance in relation to the smooth and transparent evaluation of safety of nanomaterials used in cosmetic products." The "key message" is that the data provided "must be relevant to the types of nanomaterials under evaluation, sufficiently complete, and of appropriate standards to allow adequate risk assessment." Comments are due February 17, 2014.
