OECD report 2017 alternative testing strategies
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has published a new report, which describes the state of the science in alternative testing strategies in risk assessment of manufactured nanomaterials. The report, which is being published under the responsibility of the Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and the Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology, includes considerations on how alternative testing strategies could be used in a risk analysis context to inform human health, ecosystem health, and exposure data needs for manufactured...

NSC Research Regulatory Roadmap 2017
The European NanoSafety Cluster (NSC) has recently published a Roadmap report entitled "Research priorities relevant to development or updating of nano-relevant regulations and guidelines".The purpose of the document, authored by Professor Vicki Stone in collaboration with numerous other members of the NSC, is to identify complete and ongoing activities associated with development of appropriate regulations relevant to promoting the safety of nanomaterials. In doing so, the document identifies research areas or priorities that need to be addressed further in order to facilitate this...

 New on our website www.nanopartikel.info: three cross cutting articles on the risks of nanomaterials. The complete risk analysis of a new (nano)material is a multi-stage process. The three texts are intended to provide you with an overview of this comprehensive subject area from the definition of a risk, through activities and methods for the risk management of nanomaterials to the risk communication as part of the risk management. Read more about this 3 topics: Risk Analysis, Risk Assessment and Risk Management of Nanomaterials in our section cross cutting...

DGUV Nano-Portal
The Nano-Portal "Safe Handling of Nanomaterials" of the DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance) is available in English since January 2017. The platform is an encompassing information and learning platform on the topics of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies. The portal was developed by the Innovation Society, St. Gallen (Switzerland) on behalf of DGUV and the related Social Accident Insurance Institutions. The Nano-Portal contains relevant information and documents and five interactive Nanorama-tools. Two Nanoramas (Production and Laboratory) are already available in English and...
