Background Information

The six months since NanoSight's last webinar on Nanomaterials has seen publication of two important documents:

  • The Joint Research Centre (JRC) have produced Requirements on measurements for the implementation of the European Commission Definition of the Term "nanomaterial".
  • The Commission of the European Union have published their Second Regulatory Review on Nanomaterials.

Whilst the first document describes potential characterisation methodologies for Nanomaterials, the second document emphasises the EU's support of the Nanomaterials definition from 2011 and restates intent that this be part of legislation.
