Home > Press > France Might Take The Lead On Nanotechology Regulation

Abstract:
The French government has proposed legislation which if enacted would, for the first time in the EU, start to regulate the manufacture, import or marketing of nanoparticle substances. If this proposed legislation is adopted, this will create many challenges for corporations, regulators and the French government, as well as potentially raise questions of compatability of the legislation with EU law.

The French Proposals form part of a very broad environment project referred to as the Grenelle project, which was launched in 2007. The project splits into two proposed laws, Grenelle 1 and 2. Grenelle 1 has completed its first reading and is currently before the National Assembly for its second reading. It is intended to establish the general principles, whilst Grenelle 2 is intended to provide details.
