OECD, Paris, France

The NanoHarmony (in which NIA is a partner) and NANOMET projects will have their first face-to-face joint workshop on OECD Test Guideline (TG) Development for nanomaterials back-to-back with the WPMN at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris.

NanoHarmony aims to facilitate and improve the development process of TGs from the perspective of the developers, users and harmonisation body, and supports development of several nano-related TGs and Guidance Documents (GDs). NANOMET supports OECD to identify and develop standardised methods for nanomaterials that can be used to generate relevant and reliable data for regulatory purposes.

During the workshop, challenges and best practice approaches for the TG development will be discussed. A special focus will be set on the use of TGs in regulation from an international point of view. NanoHarmony and NANOMET will inform participants about the different steps of the TG development process, potential process improvements and ongoing TG developments for nanomaterials. The open discussions will be used to collect input from stakeholders, both on the OECD process and on current OECD projects towards developments of TGs and GDs.
