This article shows the possible opportunities and risks of nanotechnologies today.
This document provides information on current/planned activities related to the safety of manufactured nanomaterials in OECD countries. Information was provided as written reports by delegations who participated in the 1st Meeting of OECD's Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials.
The main objective of the Workshop on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials was to determine the “state-of–the–art” for the safety assessment of manufactured nanomaterials with a particular focus on identifying future needs for risk assessment within a regulatory context.
The OECD’s Chemicals Committee held a Special Session on the Potential Implications of Manufactured Nanomaterials for Human Health and Environmental Safety, 7th June 2005.
This document presents information on current approaches to develop or use concepts of grouping, equivalence and read-across based on physical-chemical properties (GERA-PC) of nanomaterials for their human health and ecosystem hazard assessment in regulatory regimes.
This document present the report of an expert meeting that aimed to identify the appropriate test methods for physical-chemical parameters for manufactured nanomaterials.
