Danish report assesses administrative burdens of nano registry

The Ministry of Environment and Food in Denmark has released a new report which estimates 'the administrative burdens arising from businesses' obligation to report to the Nanoproductregister' in Denmark. The report, entitled Assessment of the administrative burdens on businesses with a reporting obligation to the Danish Nanoproductregister, relies upon data from Statistics Denmark and interviews with business that reported to the registry in 2015. The results were a comprehensive look at both the costs and barriers (ex. availability of auxiliary tools) to Danish businesses working with nanomaterials.

The Ministry estimated administrative burdens on businesses to be as high as 62.3 million Danish Krone in 2015, however only 350,000 of this was incurred by companies reporting to the Registry. The remaining costs were incurred by companies who had to assess their reporting obligations. To read the full report, visit the Ministry website.
