The Summary Report "Challenges of Regulation and Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials" (downloadable below) informs on the Joint JRC Nano event and 2nd ENPRA Stakeholders Workshop organised in May 2011 by the IHCP Nanobiosciences unit with the support of the JRC Enlargement and Integration programme, in collaboration with the FP7 project .
The workshop intended to provide an overview and a forum for discussion to regulators, scientists and other stakeholders on recent regulatory and scientific developments in the field of Environmental Health and Safety Assessment of Nanomaterials, in particular from the ENPRA FP7 project. It included sessions on regulatory development and implementation, nanomaterials characterization, exposure, and effects. Summary records of the sessions as well as abstracts of the oral presentations are presented.
The workshop (by invitation only) involved about 90 participants, from industry, government, NGOs, and academia. These included scientists of FP6 and FP7 projects, chemical and nanomaterials industry, representatives of EU Member State Competent Authorities, representatives of EU Associate and Candidate Countries, environment and workers' protection organisations, CAIQ (Chinese Academy of Inspection and Quarantine), US-EPA, ECHA, EFSA, and representatives of the European Commission.
28 presentations are available on-line: Program & Presentations
