Abstract:
2011 is set to be an important year for anybody with an interest in nanotechnology. In response to a busy timetable of political activity a partnership of organisations, including the Chemical Industries Association, are pleased to announce the launch of the Nanotechnologies Supply Chain Forum today (11 January 2011).

Nanotechnologies, Big Potential New Forum Takes On The Challenges

London | Posted on January 28th, 2011

CIA Chief Executive Steve Elliott said "I am delighted to announce that our proposals for a Nanotechnologies Supply Chain Forum received such as positive response and that today we are able to launch the forum and open it up to all interested parties to join."

"Regulatory reviews and proposals expected in 2011 means the forum will be busy from day one in bringing the many stakeholders together to help policy makers establish the right regulatory framework for the successful and safe commercialisation of nanotechnologies in the UK."

In December the European Council asked the European Commission to evaluate the need to develop specific measures for nanomaterials by addressing risk assessment and management, information and monitoring, including the further development of a harmonised database for nanomaterials.

The Commission is expected to publish a Communication on the review of regulatory aspects of nanomaterials by December 2011. The Communication is expected to propose an uniform definition of 'nanomaterials' and may suggest an extension of the REACH Regulation. This legislative development could have a big impact throughout the supply chain.

About Chemical Industries Association
The Chemical Industries Association (CIA) is the organisation that represents chemical and pharmaceutical businesses throughout the UK.

Our activities are split between lobbying and provision of advice and services. Our policy agenda stretches across the economy and competitiveness; our products and the way we work; health, safety & environment and employment issues.

We represent all sizes of chemical and pharmaceutical businesses, of which approximately 70% are overseas headquartered. This illustrates the increasingly international nature of the industry. Adherence to Responsible Care principles for manufacturing and product stewardship during transportation and use along the value chain is a condition of membership.

We lobby and campaign at the UK and EU level on issues of importance to the industry to ensure that it operates safely, profitably and with due care for the interests of future generations.

Our staff, located in Westminster, are recognised both nationally and internationally as experts on industry policy issues.
