ECHA Updates Chemicals Database, Increases Visibility of Nanomaterials

28/07/2019 in Nanotechnology

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced on July 3, 2019, that several new features and improvements are now publicly available in its chemicals database, including new information in substance Infocards.  ECHA has updated the substance Infocards with a new nanomaterial form section that shows whether the substance is placed on the European Economic Area (EEA) market in nanoform and provides links to the European Union (EU) Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON).  As reported in our July 8, 2019, blog item, through EUON’s search tool for nanomaterials, information on over 300 nanomaterials on the EU market can be found and linked to hazard data.  The search uses data from Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation registrations, the cosmetic ingredients notification portal, and the French and Belgian national inventories.
