The Commission hosted a workshop to present and discuss the main findings of the Second Regulatory Review on Nanomaterials with representatives from the European Parliament, Member States and stakeholders.
On 3 October 2012, the Commission had adopted a Communication on the Second Regulatory Review on Nanomaterials. This Communication constitutes the follow-up to the 2008 Commission Communication on regulatory aspects of nanomaterials. It assesses the adequacy and implementation of EU legislation for nanomaterials, indicates follow-up actions and responds to issues raised by the European Parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Council. As part of this Second Regulatory Review, the Commission also adopted a Staff Working Paper on Nanomaterial Types and Uses, including Safety Aspects. The Staff Working Paper presents available information on types and uses of nanomaterials and analyses relevant information on the safety of nanomaterials.
The workshop was web streamed live.
