3rd phase: FachDialogue 1 | Assessment tools for nanomaterials

Conference documents

The first two-day FachDialogue was held under the topic "Risk management in the nano world". Approximately 20 representatives of different interest groups took part and discussed the relationship between preliminary assessment tools for nanomaterials and nanoproducts and the regulatory framework. In addition, options to promote the use of preliminary asses sment tools were discussed.

This report summarizes the development process of preliminary assessment tools for nanomaterials and nanoproducts by the NanoCommission and its working groups. It also includes the results of the first FachDialog "Risk management in the nano world". The German version of the report contains a second part, which is a short guidance document to support the selection of preliminary assessment tools for nanomaterials and nanoproducts. Since this guidance only supports the selection of German tools, it is not translated to English.
