The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has launched the first European repository of nanomaterials containing 25 different types of nanomaterials. This will support safety assessments, which will help to ensure consumer protection and confidence in applications and products based on these materials.
The repository will make it possible to carry out harmonised risk assessment, ensuring standardised methodologies and materials are available, and making it possible to obtain test results that are consistent with tests carried out worldwide. The repository will also provide reliable data for policy and regulatory decision making.
The repository was set up by the JRC in response to needs for safety-assessment testing from experts in the major international standardisation bodies. It contains most types of nanomaterials currently used in significant volumes in consumer products.
