The process for the long-anticipated revision of the EU nanomaterial definition has started, with the Commission announcing a targeted stakeholder consultation which will be open until June 30.

In the run-up to the definition revision, preliminary work was carried out by the Commission and complemented by three technical reports published by the Joint Research Center (JRC). Stakeholders active in the nano space are now invited to participate in the consultation on the interim findings of this preparatory work.

In anticipation of the revision announcement, NIA has already carried out a survey to collect members' views, and will be working in the coming weeks to prepare our consultation response. For further information, you can contact our Director of Regulatory Affairs
