The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has provided three draft updates of the Appendices to Chapters R.7a, R.7b and R7.c of the Guidance on IR&CSA (Endpoint specific guidance) on “recommendations for nanomaterials” regarding environmental endpoints. The three Appendices have been sent for consultation to CARACAL (the Competent Authorities for REACH and CLP) who are now invited to comment upon the three Appendices.
The deadline for the consultation is 28 February 2017.
The three draft appendices provide a number of updates on e.g. sample preparation, how to conduct ecotoxicity, fate and environmental testing of nanomaterials.
An Exclusive NIA Member consultation (NIA Members only) is available for Members comments and input.
