The NANoREG framework report from the European Commission is intended to provide guidance to regulatory bodies and industry with regard to the safety assessment of nanomaterials (NMs) under regulatory frameworks, particularly REACH. Critical issues in the safety assessment of NMs are discussed, along with forward-looking strategies seeking to facilitate/accelerate the implementation of REACH objectives for NMs. In the context of NANoREG, a set of easy-to-use templates for logging experimental data on nanomaterials has also been released.
