The JRC,  together with  scientists from Dutch, German and Danish organisations, organised an interlaboratory study to investigate the readiness of single-particle ICP-MS for the determination of the median diameter of silver nanoparticles in food. The study revealed that significant improvements are needed before the method can be reliably used for official control purposes.

Scientists from the JRC and the Veterinary and Agrochemical Research Centre (CODA-CERVA, Belgium) have investigated the performance of a commercial particle tracking analysis device for size analysis of silica and polystyrene nano- and microparticles. The results of this study will help scientists in estimating the uncertainties of their measurement results in this field.

Europe received fewer submissions of nanomedicines for market authorisation in comparison to other regions in the world in the last five years.

This is one of the major outcomes of a recent survey performed with international regulatory bodies done by JRC scientists in collaboration with the Norwegian SINTEF Institute for Materials and Chemistry.

JRC scientists have reviewed the current status and potential applicability of computational methods for predicting the properties of engineered nanomaterials, especially in view of EU chemicals legislation (in particular REACH). The outcome of the study revealed that considerable scientific progress has been made,  although challenges remain in translating these developments into regulatory practice.
