OECD | Developments in Delegations on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials and Advanced Materials

Your substances


The OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) is a subsidiary body of the OECD Chemicals and Biotechnology Committee. This programme concentrates on human health and environmental safety implications of manufactured nanomaterials (limited mainly to the chemicals sector), and aims to ensure that the approach to hazard, exposure and risk assessment is of a high, science-based, and internationally harmonised standard. It promotes international co-operation on the human health and environmental safety of manufactured nanomaterials and involves the safety testing and risk assessment of manufactured nanomaterials.

This document compiles information provided by delegations on the 22nd WPMN meeting (June 2022). It aims to summarise relevant information on activities related to manufactured nanomaterials, as well as other activities on nanotechnologies at the international level.
