What do I need to do to ensure regulatory compliance?

Home FAQA vital aspect of the successful and responsible development and commercialisation of nanomaterials and nanotechnology-enabled products is sustained awareness of regulatory developments and a pro-active approach to ensuring compliance.

A strategy to ensuring good practice in relation to regulatory compliance could include a number of aspects (Steptoe & Johnson, 2010), such as:

  • actively monitoring new regulatory developments at a regional, national and international level; 
  • providing data to national reporting schemes; 
  • keeping records of due diligence efforts and risk assessments; 
  • engaging with the public dialogue to build consumer acceptance and confidence in the technology; 
  • participating in voluntary initiatives to support the safe use of nanomaterials (e.g. adopting a code of conduct for nanotechnologies).

SAFENANO can provide a range of bespoke services to help ensure the regulatory compliance of your nanomaterials and nano-enabled products. For further information, please contact us.
