ECHA: Environmental Hazard and Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials Meeting

  • Nanotechnology

The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) Europe will host six sessions at its meeting, in Rome, Italy, (May 13-17, 2018) will include recent developments in regulatory science and environmental risk assessment of nanomaterials. To support the session, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) welcomes abstracts on experience gained in environmental hazard and risk assessment of nanomaterials illustrated by case studies. According to ECHA, presentations may also cover the implementation of existing (or new) test methods, grouping and read-across approaches specific to nanomaterials, discussion on the further need for guidance and standard methods in relation to the regulatory needs, and available or innovative communication tools. Additionally, the session will focus on how to produce adequate and reliable information suitable for regulatory purposes and on innovative approaches to communicate the risks and benefits of nanomaterials beyond the scientific community.
