The NIA's David Carlander has written an article about the association's opinion of the European Commission's (EC) second regulatory review on nanomaterials. Published in a leading chemicals industry periodical and entitled The legal framework is there, the piece highlights the NIA's broadly positive feelings toward the recent review.
The EC's Communication and Staff Working Paper on the subject are explained in the article. The particulars of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation for nanomaterials are also elucidated.
Stakeholder input on the implementation of new regulations is urged. Criticisms of the tonnage triggers within REACH are also addressed.
