Nano-what? Nanomaterials Terminology and Safety

Consistent use of terminology is important in any field of science and technology to ensure common understanding of concepts and tools among different stakeholders, such as science experts, regulatory authorities, industry and consumers. The Joint Research Centre (JRC) report “NANoREG harmonised terminology for environmental health and safety assessment of nanomaterials” seeks to support a common understanding and consistency in the use of key terms in the field of environmental health and safety (EHS) assessment of nanomaterials. It simultaneously contributes to the on-going global debate on the meaning of some of those words in this field.
