European scientific body advises on nanomaterial definition

Abstract:
Size is the best way to define a nanomaterial but one upper limit is not sufficient, a European Commission scientific committee has concluded.

An acceptable definition of a nanomaterial is needed for regulatory purposes, and earlier this year the European Commission asked the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) for advice on what such a definition might look like.
