Better access to relevant and understandable information about nanomaterials for both European citizens and experts. That is the main goal of an agreement signed on Dec 7th 2016 between the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Commission on the European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EU-ON).

 

The information sources for the observatory will include data generated by various pieces of EU legislation regulating the safe use of nanomaterials (e.g. REACH, biocides, cosmetics), from national inventories, research projects, and market studies. By that, it will bring added value not only to European citizens but also to policy makers, industry, NGOs and workers. In its first phase, the observatory will only collect information that is already available and not generate any new data.

 

The EU-ON will be developed in three phases. ECHA will now start to prepare the first phase, which will explain what nanomaterials are and how they are used. It will also deal with safety issues and contain links to research projects. The first phase is set to go live in summer 2017. Later phases include search functionalities and more detailed product information.
