The national competent authorities for REACH and CLP (Caracal) has extended the mandate of its sub-group on nanomaterials (CASG Nano) for a further 18 months, through to June 2016.
Two of the very important areas for which the group is responsible, within the frame of REACH, are:
- Substance identification
- Definition of a nanomaterial
These are clearly issues with a very significant measurement dimension, and work needs to be undertaken to ensure that the EU has validated methods for identifying, characterising and quantifying nanomaterials, which can support an agreed, practical, definition of a nanomaterial.
