OECD | Important Issues on Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials

Your substances


This document, Important Issues on Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials, provides the current practices, challenges and strategies for assessing risk of manufactured nanomaterials in circumstances where data is limited, and there is a necessity for more research on specific risk assessment issues. As such, the document presents an overview of the chemical risk assessment paradigm and describes how various member-countries have adapted existing regulatory frameworks to the assessment of nanomaterials. It also presents the state of science on nanomaterials risk assessment (as of May 2021), and highlights priorities for research toward specific risk assessment issues.

It should be noted that this document is a living document. As such, it remains subject to refinement as research affords further understanding of how to assess and manage nanomaterials. It is not to be construed to imply scientific and/or policy endorsement of any specific risk assessment methods or models.
