D2.6 Consolidated Framework for EHS of Manufactured Nanomaterials

D2.6 Final and Approved Version is Available for Download

The European ERA-NET "Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" (SIINN) has as its primary aim the promotion of the rapid transfer of the results of nanoscience and nanotechnology research into industrial applications by helping to create reliable conditions.

One of the highest priorities of SIINN is to focus on developing a consolidated framework for environmental and health safety (EHS) for addressing nano-related risks and the management of these risks for humans and the environment.

This framework addresses:

- European and national policy-makers
- European and national stakeholders and decision-makers
- industry, industry unions, and industrial associations and interest groups
- researchers working in the field
- relevant European Technology Platforms and clusters
- the European Commission
- international organisations such as the OECD, ISO, CEN, etc.
- specialists for workers safety, human health and the environment
- Non-governmental organisations
- insurance companies, risk assessment and validation organizations

The purpose of the consolidated framework document is to present to the target groups - in a condensed and accessible form - a gateway to basic information and definitions for nanomaterials, the identification of: best practices, synergy potentials and the elaboration of recommendations for future collaborations on the strategic and operational level addressing MNM EHS. This includes precautionary measures, pre-normative work, steps towards regulations as well as common actions and projects.

This document is intended as a summary that functions as an introduction to and overview of the selected topics. However, it has been designed to be open for necessary changes, additions and updates. It is not intended to be comprehensive and final. As a living document it has thus undergone several consultation and consolidation rounds among a broad range of key stakeholders in the field. Consequently, the information depicted in the respective chapters of the document is only a snapshot in time, and subject to further changes, as appropriate.

The final and approved version of the SIINN "Consolidated Framework for EHS of Manufactured Nanomaterials" is now available and can be downloaded below.
