A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials


This project has received funding from the European Union's FP7 for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 310584 NANoREG

In NANoREG over 85 institutional partners from EU member states, associated states, the Republic of Korea and Brazil collaborated in developing reliable, reproducible and relevant methods for testing and assessing the effects of nanomaterials on human health and environment in a regulatory context. The duration of the project was 48 months; the end date was 28 February 2017. The budget was approximately fifty million euro. Ten million was provided by the EU (FP7 programme) and forty million by member states, regions, partners and other sources. As -probably the first- nanosafety project, all the information and knowledge generated under the umbrella of the NANoREG project has been made available for other parties directly after the ending of the project. The NANoREG Results Repository serves as a central point of access to all the results of the project by providing links to all relevant documents, datasets and other information of interest. A large part of the NANoREG experimental nano-EHS data is available via the NANoREG - eNanoMapper database It contains data gathered via TNO Data Entry Tool (snapshot as of 22.03.2017). The coming months more data will be added. For NANoREG partners It was mandatory to carry out the experiments with NANoREG core materials. For all these core materials a complete state-of-the-art physicochemical characterization was done considering key end-points in the OECD WPMN sponsorship program. Dispersion SOPs and minimum requirements for characterization were established and laid down in a Guidance Document thus supporting reliability and comparability of data. Experiments had to be performed in accordance with the Guidance Document. During the course of the project, those fundamental requirements were further refined. The data in the data base can be further analyzed by various tools
