Nano governance: how should the EU implement nanomaterial traceability?

Aïda Ponce (ETUI)

Publication date : 2011

Number of pages : 4

This Policy Brief addresses the need for a governance response from the European bodies to establish a registry of nanomaterial-containing articles. Better comprehensive data is urgently needed to improve knowledge of what is on the market, who is exposed and what should be regulated. Member States welcome such inventories and have developed their own initiatives but it is crucial to harmonise them in order to achieve proper protection of human and environmental health.
