Regulatory testing of Nanomaterials


Achievement of a put together in Europe for the development news strategies testing for the evaluation of the risks of the Nanomaterials.
Source of funds:
Lines research: Nanomaterials

The innovative and economic potential of Manufacture Nanomaterials (MNMs) is threatened by limited understanding of MNM safety aspects along the value chains. Substantial efforts have given insights in toxicity of and exposure to MNMs. However, today's knowledge is not comprehensive enough for regulatory purposes, answering open questions is urgently required. The outstanding approach of NANoREG will provide the right answers to Society, Industry and the National Regulation and Legislation Authorities.


To provide legislators a set of tools for risk assessment and decision making instruments for the short to medium term.
NANoREG is the first project to deliver the answers needed by regulators and legislators on environmental health and safety by linking them to a scientific evaluation of data and test methods.

Expected results:

The results expected with this Project is the is the demonstration of the efficacy of the measurements of management of the risk for the specific case of the nanomaterials, as well as a close collaboration among authorities, industry and science leading to efficient and practically applicable risk management approaches for MNMs and products containing MNMs.

NANoREG has a duration of 42 months and will be implemented from March 2013 to August 2016. It has a total budget of 48,7 million Euro, joins 57 partners from 14 countries and is coordinated by the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment of the Netherlands.
