European Repository of Reference Nanomaterials will improve safety assessment

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has just launched
the first European repository of nanomaterials with a representative range of
25 different types of reference nanomaterials. This will support safety
assessment to ensure consumer protection and confidence in many innovative
applications and products. Nanotechnology is one of today's most promising
technological developments. By enabling a harmonised risk assessment the
repository can contribute to the success of nanotechnology and its products.
Standardised methodologies and materials are necessary to obtain worldwide
comparable test results and to provide reliable data for policy and regulatory
decision making. Click here for more ...
