Science based support for regulation of Manufactured Nanomaterials - Joint scientific conference of NANoREG, ProSafe & OECD

Event Dates: 
Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - 09:00 to Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 17:30
Event Venue: 
OECD, Paris, France

Background Information

ProSafe aims to coordinate and strengthen existing and new initiatives in the field of nanosafety with emphasis on the regulatory context.
 
OECD's Programme on Manufactured Nanomaterials is focused on policy and regulatory aspects related to human health and environmental safety, which amongst other things means the development of instruments for safety assessment.
 
The ProSafe - OECD conference will discuss the results from European funded projects on nanosafety, as well as the results from the OECD 's activities on nanosafety and their regulatory relevance.
 
This event will also be the final conference of EU FP7 project NANoREG.
 

Objective

The conference will support an effective implementation of existing risk assessment frameworks for manufactured nanomaterials under pinned by relevant regulatory findings from current research on nanosafety.
 
The outcomes and recommendations of the conference aims at providing further scientific advice on risk assessment throughout the supply chain and highlight policy areas for further consideration by regulatory bodies.
