ANSES Calls for a Stronger Regulatory Framework for Nanomaterials

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) published on May 15, 2014, a review of the available literature on health and environmental issues relating to manufactured nanomaterials. See http://www.anses.fr/en/content/highlighting-toxicity-certain-nanomaterials-anses-calling-stronger-regulatory-framework According to ANSES, the review "will help clarify scientific understanding and demonstrate the toxic effects of some nanomaterials on living organisms and the environment." ANSES states that it is difficult to assess the specific risks associated with nanomaterials. ANSES recommends:

Implementing multidisciplinary projects to develop knowledge of the characteristics and hazards of nanomaterials, throughout the product life cycle;

A strengthened regulatory framework for manufactured nanomaterials at the European level to characterize better each substance and its uses, taking into account the entire product life cycle; and

Regulating certain nanomaterials for which there is sufficient scientific data on toxicity, under the European Union (EU) Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulations.
