Within REACH!? - A Review of Nanomaterial Developments under REACH & Preparation of the NIA's Participation in the CASG-Nano

Ever since the 2006 rejection of a proposed REACH Regulation amendment to subject 'nanoparticles' to authorisation irrespective of their properties, a number of activities have addressed the question of nanomaterials under REACH: ranging from official regulatory reviews conducted and/or commissioned by the European Commission, to NGO-initiated reports, to the recent increase in demands from the European Parliament and Member State to add nano-specific requirements to the text of REACH Regulation.

Questions now faced by the nanomaterials stakeholder community include:

  • What is the future role of the CASG-Nano (Competent Authorities on REACH and CLP sub-group on Nanomaterials)? 
  • Should the REACH Review, planned for 2013, include recommendations on nano-specific requirements in the REACH text? 
  • What do companies working with nanomaterials need to do to comply with REACH now and in the future? 

… find answers to these and many more questions at the:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
