The European Commission has launched a targeted stakeholder consultation through an online survey to gather insights from experts in nanotechnology and the general public on the common definition of ‘nanomaterials’. The current definition of ‘nanomaterials’ was adopted by the European Commission in 2011 and stipulated in the Recommendation 2011/696/EU on the definition of nanomaterial. This consultation aims to gather stakeholders’ views on the Commission’s interim findings that were attained through preparatory evaluations, i.e., a targeted stakeholder survey, a comprehensive assessment, a workshop, and three technical reports published by the EC JRC. The overall aim is to consider potential changes in the Recommendation.
