ASTM Nano Tox Testing Standands - 3 new ones established in Dec 07 (DOC)

Three National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Cancer Institute (NCI) Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory (NCL)-championed ASTM nanomaterial toxicity testing standards were passed by the ASTM on 31 December, 2007. The ASTM standards are available at the ASTMs website (www.astm.org)
1. ASTM F756-00 Standard Practice for Assessment of Hemolytic Properties of Materials
2. Standard Practice for Evaluation of the Effect of Nanoparticulate Materials on the Formation of Mouse Granulocyte-Macrophage Colonies
3. Standard Practice for Evaluation of Cytotoxicity of Nanoparticulate Materials on Porcine Kidney Cells
 

EU REACH and Nanomaterials (PDF)

REACH does not contain requirements specifically aimed at nano, yet the requirements provided for REACH still apply to substances at the nanoscale. Maybe, in the future, there may be nano-specific guidance documents. As of now, it is what it is.
