Frequently Asked Questions about Nanotechnology
Q: How are the potential risks of nanomaterials to human health and the environment being managed?
A: European legislation obliges manufacturers and importers to ensure the safety of all products they put on the market. When new scientific evidence comes to light, the Commission and EU Agencies will begin by reviewing the current documents that support implementation, such as implementing legislation, standards and technical guidance, to assess their applicability and appropriateness for nanomaterials.
