Danish EPA report assesses administrative burdens of nanoproduct register
The Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a new report which assesses the administrative burdens on businesses with an obligation to report to the Danish Nanoproduct register, which came into effect in June 2014.
The report utilised data from Statistics Denmark on producers or importers of products classified under a number of relevant commodity codes which in all likelihood contain nanomaterials, as well as results from an interview survey with businesses that reported to the Nanoproduct register in 2015.
Only eight businesses reported to the register in 2015. The total administrative burden on 'businesses that reported to the register in 2015' was estimated to be approximately DKK 350,000. Based on a number of assumptions, the administrative burdens on 'businesses which checked whether they had a reporting obligation' was estimated to be between DKK 21.7 and 48.9 million.
