The REACH annexes have recently been updated with specific data requirements needed for nanomaterials (Regulation (EC) 1881/2018).  As of the 1st January 2020 the regulation is now in full force.  However, the novel properties of nanoforms leads to novel problems with regard to testing.  Therefore, many standard tests may not be applicable.  Further, traditional cut-offs… Read more »

The REACH annexes have recently been updated with specific data requirements needed for nanomaterials (Regulation (EC) 1881/2018).  As of the 1st January 2020 the regulation is now in full force.  However, the novel properties of nanoforms leads to novel problems with regard to testing.  Therefore, many standard tests may not be applicable.  Further, traditional cut-offs to screen (e.g. bioaccumulation) and inform intelligent testing strategies may no longer apply.  Thus, testing strategies may become less streamlined leading to greater cost. Moreover, standard processes for assessment and specific release factors do not exist which may restrict production or use. We briefly look at missing tools and rules in comparison to conventional organic chemicals and how these can be addressed for REACH compliance.
