The ECHA Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) has been assessing TiO2 under the CLP regulation. Today, 9 June, ECHA published a press release that 'Titanium dioxide proposed to be classified as suspected of causing cancer when inhaled'. RAC concluded that the available scientific evidence meets the criteria in the CLP Regulation to classify titanium dioxide as a substance suspected of causing cancer through the inhalation route.
On 25th of May, ECHA published five documents related to nanomaterials. These documents, 4 which are guidance documents and one which is a recommendation how to prepare REACH registration dossiers containing nanoforms. All these documents are valuable for the 2018 registration deadline as well as for already registered substances.
NIA is one of the accredited stakeholder to ECHA. On 16-17 May, NIA will attend the next ECHA Nanomaterial Expert Group Meeting (ECHA NMEG).
NIA Members who are interested will find more information about the meeting at the Members Area.
NIA is delighted to be sharing a stand at the EuroNanoForum 2017 with Joanneum Research, University of Leeds,
The stand will hold discussion groups, workshops and other activities including a showcasing of industry developments in new sectors, safe-by-design tools and uptakes and regulatory advice.
