This draft proposal seeks input for the development of regulatory definition of the term "nanomaterial" for use by the European Union. The recommendations include that the definition should only apply to particulate nanomaterials, be broadly applicable in the Union legislation and be in line with other approaches worldwide. The report also suggests that size should be the only defining property with necessitates a clear definition of the nanoscale limits, and cover particles in the range of 1 nm to 100 nm.
