Abstract

The International Council of Chemical Associations, as part of their Responsible Care program, have released a document outlining the key principles that they think should be taken into consideration for the development of a regulatory definition for manufactured nanomaterials. They call for the definition to focus on solid particulate substances, rather than materials in general, that the definition should cover nano-object as defined by ISP, their agglomerates and aggregates, that the definition should focus on weight concentration rather than particle number concentration, and that it include a cut-off criterion because all solid particulate substances will have a particle size distribution that is like to have a certain fraction at the nanoscale.
