A report has recently been published summarising the discussions held as part of the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety’s (SCCS) 16th plenary meeting. The committee adopted an opinion on the nano-form of zinc oxide following a request.
The meeting also saw the chairperson of the Working Group (WG) on Nano-materials in Cosmetics describe on-going work it was conducting.
The next plenary meeting took place on the 11 December 2012, but the document summarising it has not yet been made available.
