REACH法规:新准则将有助于公司更好地评估纳米材料的安全性和影响

发布时间: 2019-01-07 10:58:51   审校:睿智  

欧盟委员会通过了REACH法规下的纳米材料的新要求,明确了如何注册纳米态的物质。新规定将于2020年1月1日起实施。

今天,欧盟委员会通过了对《欧盟关于化学品注册、评估、授权和限制的法规(REACH)》若干附录的修订,明确了纳米材料的注册要求。

纳米材料是指具有特殊形态(纳米态)的化学物质,它们在1 nm至100 nm之间“纳米尺度”具有特殊性能。部分由于这些特殊性能,纳米材料能够以许多不同和创新的方式使用,例如应用于催化剂、电子设备、太阳能电池板、电池、材料科学和生物医学应用中。REACH 法规一直适用于纳米材料,但并未包含对它们的具体规定,这就是为什么许多公司通常不知道如何注册这些“纳米态的物质”的原因。

科学证据表明,纳米态物质的毒性及其对环境的影响通常不同于常见的物质。

纳米材料的新注册要求规定将于2020年1月1日起开始实施。在把什么纳米材料投放到市场,以及投放多少数量这两个方面,它们将有助于弥补这两个方面知识上的空白。欧盟委员会还将提供关于其基本特征和用途、如何安全处理、可能对健康和环境造成什么风险以及如何充分控制这些风险的信息。在含有纳米材料的产品中,关于纳米材料存在和联系的更详细信息,请参见《欧洲纳米材料观察》。

REACH: New criteria helps companies better assess safety and impact of nanomaterials

Commission adopts new registration requirements for nanomaterials under REACH, clarifying how to register nanoforms of substances. The new rules will apply as of 1 January 2020.

Today, the European Commission adopted the revision of several Annexes of the EU Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), clarifying the registration requirements with regard to nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials are chemical substances in a particular form ("nanoform") with special features at the "nanoscale" between 1 nm and 100 nm. Due in part to these special features, nanomaterials can be used in many different and innovative ways, for example in catalysts, electronics, solar panels, batteries, in materials science and biomedical applications. REACH has always applied to nanomaterials, but did not contain specific provisions for them, which is why companies often did not know how to register these "substances in nanoform".       Scientific evidence has shown that the toxicity of nanoforms as well as their effect on the environment often differs from the conventional substance.

The new registration requirements for nanomaterials will apply as of 1 January 2020. They will help close the knowledge gap about which nanomaterials are placed on the market and in which quantities. They will also provide information on their basic characteristics and use, how to handle them safely, what risks they potentially pose to health and the environment and how these risks can be adequately controlled. More detailed information on the presence and perspectives of products containing nanomaterials can be found at the European Observatory for Nanomaterials.
