A study commissioned by the EU nanomaterials observatory (EUON) has found that the current EU regulatory framework for characterising and identifying “next generation” nanomaterials is able to address the majority of them and that no significant changes will be needed in the near future.



Member States voted to revise the REACH annexes to include specific information requirements for nanomaterials manufactured or imported on the EU market in quantities above one tonne. The new requirements apply from 1 January 2020 and will enable companies and authorities to systematically assess the hazardous properties of nanomaterials, how they are used safely, and what risks they may pose to our health and the environment. This information will help authorities in the EU to identify if further risk management measures are needed.
