Developments in Delegations on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials - Series on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials No. 87
The OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) is a subsidiary
body of the OECD Chemicals 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
This document compiles information, provided by delegations, on the occasion of the
