OECD Database on Research into the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials

Abstract:
OECD Database on Research into Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials is a global resource which collects research projects that address environmental, human health and safety issues of manufactured nanomaterials. This database helps identify research gaps and assists researchers in future collaborative efforts. The database also assists the projects of the OECD's Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) as a resource of research information.

As part of the OECD activities to promote international co-operation in addressing human health and environmental safety aspects of manufactured nanomaterials, the OECD has developed a global resource which collects research projects that address environmental, human health and safety issues of manufactured nanomaterials. This database holds details of completed, current and planned research projects on safety, which are to be updated (electronically) by delegations. This database is also intended to be an inventory of information on research programmes to help the other projects of the WPMN by identifying relevant research projects or storing information derived from the projects of the WPMN, including the sponsorship programme on the testing of manufactured nanomaterials.

What sort of information is included in the database?

The OECD Database on Research into the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials (the database) is an inventory of safety research information on manufactured (engineered) nanomaterials.

Manufactured nanomaterials are those intentionally produced to have specific properties or specific composition, a size range typically between 1 nm and 100 nm and material which is confined in one, two, or three dimensions at the nanoscale (nano-object) or having an internal or surface structure at the nanoscale (nanostructured).
