    Sponsorship Programme for the Testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials

    OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) launched a Sponsorship Programme in November 2007. The programme involves OECD member countries, as well as some non-member economies and other stakeholders to pool expertise and to fund the safety testing of specific Manufactured Nanomaterials (MNs). In launching this Sponsorship Programme, the WPMN agreed on a priority list of 13 MNs for testing (based on materials which are

    Interim Report- Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program

    The Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program (NMSP) was developed to help provide a firmer scientific foundation for regulatory decisions by encouraging submission and development of information for nanoscale materials. The NMSP comprised two sub-programs, the Basic Program and the In-Depth Program. When the NMSP was initiated, EPA committed to issue this interim report after one year. The Agency welcomes comments on this interim

    List of Manufactured Nanomaterials and List of Endpoints for Phase One of the OECD Testing Programme

    OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials has launched a “sponsorship programme” in which countries will share the testing of specific nanomaterials (MNs) at its 3rd meeting (November 2008). Much valuable information on the safety of MNs can be derived by testing a representative set for human health and environmental safety. In launching this “sponsorship programme” the Working Party agreed a priority list of MNs for
