eREACHNano - Free tool for registering nanomaterials
e-REACHNano is a new web tool designed to help small and medium-sized businesses who do not themselves have expertise in nanomaterial regulation.
A working group under the Nordic Council of Ministers, N-Nano, and DHI have launched a new tool with information on nanomaterials for use in connection with REACH registrations. The tool is in English and is designed to help small and medium-sized businesses who do not themselves have expertise in nanomaterial regulation.
The requirements for the data needed to record nanoforms according to the nano REACH guide are explained in a number of small videos and include: (*) Definition of nanomaterials (*) Types of nanomaterials (*) Overview of annexes in the existing REACH guide, which specifically relates to nanomaterials (*) Chemical and physical characterization of nanomaterials (*) Test of nanomaterials (*) Exposure and risk assessment of nanomaterials
In December 2018, the European Commission adopted a review of the information requirements of REACH . The changes clarify what information companies that market substances in nano form should disclose in their registration dossier. The new changes will apply from 1 January 2020.
The new requirements that come into effect in January 2020 are not included in the current version of eREACHNano, but will be included in an updated version of the tool later this year.
