This Third open meeting – European Conference on “Standardization for nanotechnologies and nanomaterials for safer products, production and uses” is held on October 2nd, 2018 in Brussels. It may give you opportunity to meet many experts interested in Nanotechnologies.

This event is organized by CEN/TC 352 “Nanotechnologies” in collaboration with CEN-CENELEC and the European Commission, with the aim to present and to discuss the following subjects:

 - What are the European Commission perspectives on nanomaterials regulation and the role of standardisation?

- What are the results of CEN/TC 352 on Nanotechnologies, CEN/TC 195 on Air filters for general air cleaning, and CEN/TC 137 on Assessment of workplace exposure to chemical and biological agents?

- How standardization can support the implementation of regulation?

- What are the role of European projects (H2020, EMPIR), OECD, ISO and CEN?

- How to match standardization with the need of Industries?

- How to implement risk assessment tools in the innovation processes?

- What are the implementation of “soft law” and the good practices in industry?

- How to create a trusted environment for industry?

- What are the challenges to measure filtration efficiency for nanoparticles in liquids for semiconductor industries?

- Is there need to understand the risks of manufactured nanomaterial?

- How to better serve and protect the society at large?

- What are the obstacles for setting guidance values on human and environmental toxicities?

- What are the risk perceptions of nanomaterials by the society and how standardization could help?

- How to ensure the communication and transparency on registries and databases, on labelling to inform consumers, on traceability, on Risk uncertainties?

This conference is open to all participants of Technical Committees (ISO, CEN, IEC) involved in the mandate M/461 “Standardization activities regarding nanotechnologies and nanomaterials” as well as to external organizations such as European Technology Platforms, FP7 projects, Horizon 2020 projects, EU initiatives, European Commission DGs working on this subject (DG GROW, DG ENV, DG SANTE, DG RTD, JRC); EU agencies and OECD on identified topics of interest.

This conference is open to all but the places are limited to those who register in advance. Participation and lunch are free of charge.
