Sweden to develop a Nanomaterial Registry

The Swedish Chemicals Agency (KEMI) has been tasked with the designing of a national nanomaterial register in Sweden. Upon the request of the Swedish Ministry of the Environment (Miljödepartementet) [in Swedish], KEMI is drafting a proposal for a register and conducting an impact assessment.  Consultations will be run with Agencies and stakeholders. KEMI intends to finalise this process by 1 December 2015. 

In 2013, the Swedish authorities had already advocated the creation of register in its National Action Plan for the safe use and handling of Nanomaterials.
