They also consider that REACH should be modified to accommodate any new thinking on nanomaterial risk assessment: where current evaluations systems seem to be inadequate.
EC will establish a web site with references to all relevant information sources, including registries on a national or sector level, where they exist.
While it is reassuring that most accessible Nanomaterials ought to be mentioned in REACH registration, it is far from clear that the appropriate risk-based decisions will result. The implementation of the nanomaterial web site should allow insurers to make more complete risk assessments.
In our view, the APA scale developed for Radar subscribers remains the most useful tool with which insurers may develop expertise/experience in this field.
