The OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) has recently published several new reports in its Series on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials, focusing on physico-chemical properties of nanomaterials, categorisation and group/read-across approaches as well as an evaluation of existing methods applied in the OECD-WPMN testing programme.

 

 

 

NEW OECD WPMN Reports in 2016

  • No. 66 - Categorisation of manufactured nanomaterials
  • No. 65 - Physical-chemical properties of nanomaterials: Evaluation of methods applied in the OECD-WPMN testing programme
  • No. 64 - Approaches on nano grouping/ equivalence/ read-across concepts based on physical-chemical properties (GERA-PC) for regulatory regimes
  • No. 63 - Physical-chemical parameters: measurements and methods relevant for the regulation of nanomaterials

 

 

A full list of publications in the Series on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials is available on the OECD WPMN website via http://www.oecd.org/env/ehs/nanosafety/publications-series-safety-manufactured-nanomaterials.htm.
