The manufacture, import and distribution of nanomaterials is being increasingly targeted by policy-makers on both sides of the Atlantic. In this context, reporting schemes directly aiming nanomaterials is becoming a common tool to attempt at regulating them.
Both American and Canadian authorities are currently considering putting reporting obligations into place under their chemical regulations. In Europe, several countries (including France, Belgium and Denmark) have launched or are considering to launch such regulatory systems in the recent years while the European Union still weighing the pros and cons.
This presentation by our expert speaker, Guillaume Flament, will provide you with a description of the existing reporting systems for the manufacture, import and distribution of nanomaterials and their differences. It will also cover the proposed systems and their future development.
You will also get a slideshow in PDF format with hyperlinks for more information as well as selected NIA briefings/reports handouts.
