    EEB (Belgium)

    The EEB regrets the long and unjustified delay and total absence of legal action on nanomaterials to ensure the protection of health and environment by the European Commission since 2012. Meanwhile, European citizens and environment are unnecessarily exposed to these materials of concern and authorities are unable to protect them due to a general lack of data on the nanomaterials’ used and produced in Europe. Even if this process advances now...

The Board of Appeal notes that some...

    The Graphene Flagship welcomes the new regulations on the safety issues of Nanomaterials. We are ready to contribute to these topics and work in close collaboration. As a possible amendment, we ask the following change: "Although acute toxicity testing for the lowest tonnage is required via the oral route, for nanoforms, inhalation or in very specific cases the dermal route may be considered as more appropriate route of exposure." Note 17 at...

Note 17 at page 4 of part 2 We believe this sentence should be amended to: "Although acute toxicity testing for the lowest tonnage is required via the oral route, for nanoforms with an evident occupational exposure, inhalation and...
