As part of the OECD activities to promote international co-operation in addressing human health and environmental safety aspects of manufactured nanomaterials, the OECD has developed a global resource which details research projects that address safety issues of manufactured nanomaterials. This database holds details of completed, current and planned research projects on safety, which are to be updated and managed electronically by
OECD Database on Research into Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials is a global resource which collects research projects that address environmental, human health and safety issues of manufactured nanomaterials. This database helps identify research gaps and assists researchers in future collaborative efforts. The database also assists the projects of the OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) as a resource of
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

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
OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials launched a “sponsorship programme” at its 3rd meeting (November 2007). Countries will share the testing of specific nanomaterials (MNs) under this 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
Current Developments and Activities on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials (3rd Meeting of the Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials held on 28-30 November 2007)
OECD member countries, as well as some non-member economies and other stakeholders, are pooling expertise and funding to test the human health and environmental safety effects of a number of nanomaterials.
This symposium will be held on 23rd April 2007 in Tokyo, Japan. A two-day OECD WPMN meeting - OECD Workshop on the Sponsorship Programme for the Testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials - will follow this event to discuss the sponsorship programme for the testing of manufactured nanomaterials.
