EU nanomaterials observatory updated with two searchable databases

The European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) now features two searchable databases: NanoData, a knowledge base on nanoscience and technology, and the eNanoMapper, which helps you find safety information about nanomaterials. The EUON has also been updated with new web pages on nanomaterials within the EU regulatory framework, how they are used in different sectors, and how to use them safely at work. The content is available in 23 EU languages.

REACH 2018
Check your REACH-IT account regularly

Once you have submitted your REACH registration dossier, make sure that you regularly log in to your REACH-IT account and check:
  • the tasks section, where you will receive important information on your registration that requires an action from you (e.g. your invoice, invoice reminders and completeness check failure notices);
  • the progress of your submission.

Make sure that the email indicated in the ‘Email notification settings’ under the 'Manage company' section of REACH-IT is up to date. A message will be sent to that email address every time there is a new task in your REACH-IT account.

Give your feedback on sector use maps

Are you a registrant using sector use maps to help you describe the uses of your substances or to carry out a chemical safety assessment? Then let us know about your experience in using them through our short questionnaire. Your feedback will be used to improve our use map library and to gain insight into how the use maps are being used and how they could be further developed to meet your needs.
