This joint project builds on work undertaken by two separate OECD WPMN activities, former Project one (Development of an OECD database on Human Health and Environmental Safety Research) and former Project two (EHS Research strategies on Manufactured Nanomaterials).
This document is the report of the workshop held on 16-18 September 2009 in Washington D.C., United States, co-hosted by Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) and Society for Risk Analysis (SRA).
This document compiles the operational plans 2009-2012 for the eight projects of the WPMN and it is published on the responsibility of the Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and the Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology of the OECD.
This is intended to provide delegations and other stakeholders with a “snapshot” of information on activities related to manufactured nanomaterials, as well as other activities on nanotechnologies, at the national and international level.
Following the recommendation from the ICCM2 (SAICM), OECD and UNITAR agreed to hold a series of “IOMC/OECD/UNITAR Awareness-Raising Workshops for Developing and Transition Countries on Nanotechnology /Manufactured Nanomaterials” in conjunction with SAICM regional meetings during 2009/2010

The Database on Research into the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials (the Database) develops a global resource, which identifies research projects that address human health and environmental safety issues associated with manufactured nanomaterials.
This Guidance Manual for the Testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials, is a “living document” and as such, it will be updated and amended in an iterative manner based upon knowledge accumulation as the testing programme and Dossier Development Plans (DDPs) work progresses.
