On 11 June 2019, the Commission published a call for data to get information on of gold, platinum and copper under the framework of the Cosmetic Regulation (EC) 1223/2009

The Commission invite any interested parties, including academic and other research institutes, EU countries’ authorities, manufacturers of cosmetic products, producers of the substances and consumers associations, to submit any scientific information relevant to the safety assessment of

1. ‘Gold (nano) and colloidal gold (nano)’ (CAS no. 7440-57-5, EC No. 231-165-9, without or with surface modifications – e.g. CAS no. 1360157-34-1)
2. ‘Platinum (nano) and colloidal platinum (nano)’ (CAS no. 7440-06-4, EC No. 231-116-1, without or with surface modifications)
3. ‘Copper (nano) and colloidal copper (nano)’ (CAS no. 7440-50-8, EC No. 231-159-6)
According to the call for data 'the Commission has concerns about the use of gold, colloidal gold, platinum, colloidal platinum, copper and colloidal copper in the nano form, because of the potential of nanoparticles to enter cells through dermal absorption or across a mucous membrane. In addition, the data submitted by the applicants seem to be insufficient for the scientific committee on consumer safety (SCCS) to carry out a full risk assessment. The EC have mandated the SCCS to assess the safety of the above-mentioned nanomaterials.
Interested parties are invited to submit any relevant scientific information on the safety of of the materials in question following a provided template. The EC are asking for 'data on all physicochemical properties, toxicokinetics and toxicological end-points, assessment of exposure through consumer products and/or an indication on the suggested safe concentration limits for these ingredients.'
The deadline to submit data is 10 November 2019. 
NIA Members are invited to contact NIA to provide any information joinly.
