Here you can search for nanomaterials that are currently on the EU market. The data is collected from publicly available information from REACH registrations, the Cosmetics Regulation as well as French and Belgian national inventories. The results are linked to ECHA’s chemicals database.
As there are differences in defining nanomaterials and tonnage reporting thresholds, the presence of a nanomaterial in any single data source does not mean that it is present in all of them. As the data sources have differing reporting rules and scopes, it is not always possible to match a material reported in one of the data sources with the substance in ECHA’s database. Where no match is possible, the material in the original data source has not been reported.
Some of the information on registered substances may belong to third parties. The use of such information may therefore require prior permission from third party owners.
The European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) provides information about existing nanomaterials on the EU market. Whether you are developing policies in the area, a consumer or representing industry or a green NGO, the information on the EUON offers interesting reading about the safety, innovation, research and uses of nanomaterials.
The EUON is funded by the European Commission. It is hosted and maintained by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
