REACH Revision 2024/2025: Nanomaterials

28 June 2023

The updated cross-sector definition for nanomaterials from 10th June 2022 (2022/C 229/01) will be included in the REACH revision text. Furthermore, it is planned to clarify the characterization requirements for nanoforms and for naming of nanosets. In addition, there are considerations to oblige downstream users to characterize nanoforms that they produce by transforming substances into them, if the nanoforms are not covered by the actual registration dossier. These considerations also include the downstream user obligation to provide information on the safe use of such nanoforms.
