Regulatory Monitoring Services

The broad areas of application of nanotechnologies, ranging from crop optimisation to cosmetics, are under the scrutiny of regulatory authorities worldwide that develop regulations that impact nanotechnology industries across the planet.

NIA provides its Members with Regulatory Monitoring Services, thus allowing a better understanding of the rules in application. Numerous regulations already specifically target nanotechnologies and set guidelines that manufacturers, importers and distributors of nanomaterials and products containing nanomaterials have to comply with. Through its Regulatory Monitoring Services, NIA provides information for its Members to act in accordance with the legislation in force where they operate. In addition, NIA monitors the legislative process and its upcoming deadlines, NIA Members are alerted on the most significant regulatory outbreaks via NIA’s Regulatory Monitoring Database.
