ECHA encourages companies to familiarise themselves with the impending new legal requirements for the registration of nanomaterials (in force from 1 January 2020), and to update their existing dossiers with nanoform-specific information. The revised REACH annexes addressing nanoforms introduce clarifications and new provisions regarding characterisation (of nanoforms or sets thereof), chemical safety assessment, information requirements, and downstream user obligations.
