Contribution to the EU nano definition


30 June 2021

Today, ETAD submitted to ECHA its contribution to the Consultation on the revision of the definition of nanomaterials. Some specific points we underlined and commented on are:

  • the possibility to specify that nanomaterials should be solid and insoluble;
  • the possibility to introduce the mass size distribution at least as an additional parameter to the number size distribution;
  • the relative low value of the VSSA as a tool for identifying nananomaterials;
  • the uncertainty about the future of our nanomaterials, in case specific “nano data” requests for actually very well characterized products become too high.
