Home > Press > REACH Implementation Projects on Nanomaterials (RIP-oN 2&3) - Final Project Reports published by the European Commission: Reports published to develop specific advice on the implementation of REACH for nanomaterials

Abstract:
Final reports have been published from two REACH Implementation Projects on Nanomaterials (RIP-oN 2&3). Commissioned by the JRC's Institute for Health & Consumer Protection, the projects intended to develop specific advice on the implementation of REACH for nanomaterials. The outputs from the projects have been developed over a period of 12-16 months in consultation with a range of stakeholders. The reports have scoped the current state-of-the-science regarding assessment of nanomaterials in the context of REACH, and provide recommendations to the European Commission on how the REACH Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment could be further developed to better address nanomaterials.

REACH Implementation Projects on Nanomaterials (RIP-oN 2&3) - Final Project Reports published by the European Commission: Reports published to develop specific advice on the implementation of REACH for nanomaterials

Edinburgh, UK | Posted on October 19th, 2011

The RIP-oN 2 project has addressed the REACH information requirements on intrinsic properties of nanomaterials, and the information needed for safety evaluation of nanomaterials. The RIP-oN 3 project has addressed exposure assessments and hazard and risk characterisation for nanomaterials within the REACH context.

The projects were undertaken by a consortium led by SAFENANO at the Institute of Occupational Medicine and involving the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic), the Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA), and Soluzioni Informatiche, which brought together internationally renowned experts from disciplines including physical sciences, life sciences, occupational hygiene, and risk assessment.

The final reports can be downloaded from the DG Environment webpage at ec.europa.eu/environment/chemicals/nanotech/index.htm#ripo:n
