Whitepaper: Part 3: Nanomaterials and REACH - What do I have to do differently? Nanomaterials and REACH - What do I have to do differently

No toxicological mechanisms that are specific to nanomaterials as a whole have been identified as yet. This has led to the conclusion that the testing requirements applicable to bulk substances under REACH can also be applied to nanomaterials. However, the unique properties of nanomaterials must be taken into account when designing a study. Ongoing work by the OECD towards developing standardised testing protocols is yielding new methods, but whilst this is still to be completed…
