JRC Report Assesses Experiences with the EC Recommendation on the Definition of Nanomaterial

The European Commission's (EC) Joint Research Center (JRC) has published a report entitled Towards a review of the EC Recommendation for a definition of the term "nanomaterial" -- Part 2: Assessment of collected information concerning the experience with the definition. See https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/publication/eur-scientific-and-technical-research-reports/towards-review-ec-recommendation-definition-term-nanomaterial-part-2-assessment-collected?search In the report, JRC assesses information collected between August 2013 and April 2014 from scientists, research institutes, regulatory bodies, non-governmental organizations, and industry regarding implementation of the EC recommendation on the definition of nanomaterial. The report builds on the first report of the series, entitled Towards a review of the EC Recommendation for a definition of the term "nanomaterial" -- Part 1: Compilation of information concerning the experience with the definition. The report states: "Based on the feedback received regarding the current definition, compiled in the first report of the series, and its assessment, presented in this second report, the JRC is now working on a set of indications on how the definition could be modified to improve its clarity, effectiveness and implementability. These recommendations will be included in a final report (Part 3 of the series), which is expected to be released later in 2014."
