US EPA: Definitieve regels voor rapporteren nanomaterialen

27 januari 2017

The US EPA has finalised its nanoscale materials reporting rule, completing a process that began more than 11 years ago. The rule will require one-time reporting for existing nanoscale materials and for new discrete nanomaterials before they are manufactured or processed. Manufacturers, importers and processors must electronically report certain information, such as production volume and method of manufacture, of covered substances one year from the rule's effective date.
The US position contrasts with that of the European Commission, which has rejected the idea of a specific mandatory reporting obligation for nanomaterials (ChemicalWatch, 12 januari 2017).
