The European Commission has been performing a review of its Recommendation on the definition of nanomaterial (2011/696/EU). It has now launched a targeted stakeholder consultation to update, test and verify the preliminary findings of this review. Further evidence and feedback will be gathered from a wide range of stakeholders who have a role in application of the harmonized regulatory definition of nanomaterial in the EU. The online consultation is open until 30 June 2021.
The consultation aims to:
- Verify or complement the findings of the review
- Gather precise and structured technical feedback on the identified technical elements of the definition that could be addressed by changes to the definition
- Gather input on the impact of the changes under consideration: would they influence (different) classification of specific materials placed or emerging on the market?
