Today, Thursday 26 April, the REACH Committee adopted several modifications to the REACH Annexes to require specific information on nanomaterials. 

In October 2017 the European Commission presented a draft Commission Regulation proposing a number of modificaitons to the REACH Annexes following a long discussion with Members States and Stakeholders. Today, after several meetings within the REACH Committee, composed of Member States, a text was agreed and voted upon. The text that was agreed upon has been revised following the original EC proposal. The next step for the agreed text is a 3 month scrutiny by the European Parliament and the Council before it comes back for final adoption by the European Commission. 

The final text found here. NIA will assess the changes in detail. NIA comments to the draft proposal can be found here
