Observatory for Nanomaterials

The signing of an agreement between the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Commission earlier this month, marks the formal kick-off on the creation of the European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EU-ON). The information sources for the observatory will include data generated by various pieces of EU legislation regulating the safe use of nanomaterials (e.g. REACH, biocides, cosmetics), from national inventories, research projects, and market studies. By that, it will bring added value not only to European citizens but also to policy makers, industry, NGOs and workers. In its first phase, which will be concluded by the Summer 2017, the observatory will only collect information that is already available and not generate any new data.
