Swedish Chemical Agency (KEMI) Nanomaterials Reporting (Proposed Rule)

The Policy

What it does

Proposes reporting requirements for nanomaterials.

Synopsis

The Swedish Chemicals Agency (KEMI) proposes (see page 8 for the summary in English) that those who report chemical products to the products register shall, in addition to the information that is currently reported, also provide further information regarding any nanomaterials contained in the product. The proposal covers nanomaterials which have been intentionally added to the product, regardless of concentration. Nanomaterials are defined in accordance with the recommended definition of the European Commission. Although, this proposal does not cover nanomaterials that are naturally occurring or unintentionally produced.
