The French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy has extended the deadline for first-year declarations to be made to its nano reporting scheme. According to the authority this follows consideration of ‘the diversity of actors covered by the declaration requirement, and at the request of several industries’.
The agency noted that, by the original 30 April 2013 deadline, ‘457 companies had made 1991 declarations’. It considered these ‘initial results’ to be satisfactory.
The new deadline for stakeholders to register under the French scheme is 30 June 2013.
