Introduction
A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials
Ongoing international initiatives: OECD WPMN






Searching for common instruments to regulate nanomaterials
Main players: EU, US, Japan, Korea, Canada, Australia
Sponsorship project running to 2015
Aims include: grouping the main risks of nanomaterials
Aim: find common denominator for implementing guidelines
Aim: Develop or modify SPSF procedures or technical guidelines
The OECD WPMN approach is based on research into
the material based effects of nanomaterials

Introduction
A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials
NANoREG – the other side of the coin
 A H2020 project, before H2020 even kicks off, combining all the
aspects of societal needs, innovation, exploitation & industry
 61 partners from 14 EU states, 50 M €, 42 months
 20 M € in-vivo, 25 M € in-vitro, 5 M € safe by design
 NANoREG approach is to look at the overal methodology
 Value Chain Studies central in NANoREG strategy
 Aim is grouping of nanomaterials based on phys-chem and tox
rather than risk based (OECD WPMN)
 Structured to deliver answers on regulatory questions coming
from the member states

Introduction
A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials
NANoREG – expected results and impact
 Will contribute to a safe and controlled market entrance of new
nanomaterials and nanomaterial based products
 Help fill the gaps and shortcomings in current evaluation
methods for new materials
 Include risk analysis at the drawing board stage – promote Safe
by Design
 Support an EU wide integrated risk policy
 Aim: find common denominator for implementing guidelines
 Aim: Develop or modify SPSF procedures or technical guidelines
Grouping, regulating, and risk management

Introduction
A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials
NANoREG – international position
 Already forms the EU contribution to the EU-US axis on global
regulation of nanomaterials
 Strong interest shown by several OECD countries to participate
on the basis of their own financial support – Japan, Korea,
Australia, Canada, Turkey
 Strong interest shown by several other countries to join on an
own cost basis, now under evaluation – China, Russia, Brazil
 Links to other organisations (ECHA, OECD, ISO, etc)
 Links to ongoing projects and initiatives based on areas of
common interest

NANoREG Partners
A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials
A collaboration between
60 partners from
14 European countries
11 are EU member states
(NL, DE, FR, ES, IT, DK, SE,
FI, UK, IR, PT)
3 are associated states
(TR, CH, NO), and
JRC

Overall objectives
A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials
1. Providing legislators with a set of tools for risk
assessment and decision making instruments for the short
to medium term, by gathering data and performing pilot
risk assessment, including exposure monitoring and
control, for a selected number of nanomaterials used in
products;
2. Developing for the long term, new testing strategies
adapted to a high number of nanomaterials where many
factors can affect their environmental and health impact.
3. Establishing a close collaboration among authorities and
industry with regard to the knowledge required for
appropriate risk management, and create the basis for
common approaches, mutually acceptable datasets and
risk management practices.
