Food may contain additives based on nanomaterials. These food additives alter various properties such as appearance, taste or shelf life. They are also used to encapsulate trace substances, which increases the stability of the coated compounds.   Which nanomaterials are currently found in food? What is the legal framework for the use of nanomaterials? Are there health concerns regarding added nanoparticles?   These questions are answered in the new DaNa article “Nanomaterials in Food” in the cross-cutting section.
Two guidance documents have been updated with advice for companies preparing registration dossiers that cover nanoforms. The documents help registrants in fulfilling new legal requirements for nanomaterials that apply from 1 January 2020. A new Appendix for nanoforms to the Guidance on Registration and Substance Identification has been developed. It aligns ECHA’s guidance with the revised REACH annexes for nanomaterials that enter into application on 1 January 2020. The document explains the term nanoform, provides advice on how to build and justify sets of nanoforms and explains...

The European Commission published a white paper about "Anticipation of regulatory needs for nanotechnology-enabled health products" Development of nanotechnology-based applications in health sector offer innovative therapeutic and diagnostic opportunities to address medical needs. At the moment, no specific regulatory framework exists for nano-enabled health products. The white paper, published by the European Commission, summarizes the major challenges associated with the regulation of the nano-enabled health products. Depending on their mode of action nano-enabled health...
