Vienna declaration
During the 11th International Nano-Authorities-Dialogue in March of 2017, the "Vienna Declaration" was adopted by the German-speaking delegations of authorities. As a consequence and recommendation, the conference demands the nano-specific adaptation of REACH by the year 2020. The declaration was submitted to the general secretary of the European council (Environment) and discussed as information in the meeting on June 19. Since 2007, the Nano-Authorities Dialogue has been organized and moderated by the Innovationsgesellschaft, St.Gallen, on behalf of German-speaking authorities...

BAuA report
Beginning of June 2017, the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) has published the final report for the project "Methodology for the Identification of Granular Biopersistent Particles (GBP) at Workplaces". The final report states that the category includes respirable granular biopersistent particles without known significant specific toxicity. This category comprises various materials such as minerals, metals, metal oxides, or polymers that show a negligible solubility in lung fluids.The project consisted of the following three modules:Module 1: In...

Press release empa
An Empa team has succeeded in developing a new three-dimensional cell model of the human placental barrier. The "model organ" can quickly and reliably deliver new information on the intake of substances, such as nano-particles, by the placental barrier and on any possible toxic effects for the unborn child. This knowledge can also be used in the future for the development of new approaches to therapy during pregnancy. During its development, the foetus is extremely susceptible to toxic substances. Even the tiniest doses can cause serious damage. In order to protect the unborn...
